Congratulations to the New Council 57 Executive Board

Members elected a new Executive Board for Council 57 at the April Delegates Meeting, bringing in a number of fresh new voices to guide AFSCME's presence in Northern California over the next term.

Out of the 15 board positions, 12 different locals are represented. That's a true testament of the democratic nature of our union, and each new board member pledged to do their part to represent all locals' interests and make our union stronger.

"Thank you all for your participation in your democracy," said Abdul Johnson, the new Council 57 president, as he was addressing the delegates after the election. "This is what makes AFSCME the best union in the world."
