AFSCME Council 57

Barbara Glaze helps veterans who have found their way into the criminal justice system.

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.

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 27,000 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.
