AFSCME Virginia

In a victory for public service workers in Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam has signed a bill authorizing collective bargaining for some public employees across the commonwealth.

AFSCME members are on the front lines, keeping our communities running.

This past Saturday, you might have been cooking a late breakfast, planning a fun weekend activity or taking some quiet time with your family.

It’s easy to say that the 2020 election is the most important of our lifetimes, but hearing this firsthand from AFSCME Retirees, many of whom have dedicated their lives to public service and making America a better place to live, shows the urgency to us all.

Right now, front-line public service workers – health care workers, corrections officers, custodians, and other public service workers – are putting their lives at risk to fight this pandemic.

AFSCME, the nation’s largest and most powerful advocate for public service employees, is reaching out to Virginia’s public employees for your input on how to best protect front-line workers and the communities you serve.
