With high employee turnover, low and stagnant wages, pandemic-related layoffs, chronic cuts to city services and resources, city of Norfolk employees deserve real solutions. AFSCME Virginia members from Norfolk, community supporters, faith, and political leaders have repeatedly reached out to elected officials requesting the city address its employee crisis with no response.

Norfolk employees are escalating our campaign for respect on the job and a true voice. Together we are asking Norfolk City manager to finally sit down with city employees and hear our concerns.

City of Norfolk employees deserve to be heard! Click here to be connected to city manager Chip Filer’s office – demand he stop ignoring city employees and hear our workplace concerns.
