Our state is on a path to create one million good jobs that can ensure quality care for our families, reliable transportation, healthier air to breathe, and a better quality of life for all Californians.

Today, growing numbers of workers realize that if they want to gain respect and assure fairness, they need to join together to form a union. 

AFSCME has the best record in the nation for helping workers secure representation rights by winning representation elections and settling first contracts.

Nationally, AFSCME is 1.3 million strong, with more than 35,000 members in Northern California. Thousands more are joining us every year.

Organizing and growing gives us more power. The more members our union has, the more powerful we are in the workplace and with the politicians who make decisions that affect our work and lives.
