AFSCME is pleased to see Governor Walker finally address the problems in the juvenile corrections system after nearly 7 years of crisis in the division.

AFSCME Local 1205, the American Red Cross and the NLRB are entering into an informal settlement of the complaints that were made in August about the implementation of cross training. 

Through this settlement the Red Cross agrees to restore the conditions that existed before it started to require blood collection technicians to load and drive trucks and encouraged truck loaders/drivers to perform blood drawing and donor care work that has traditionally been performed only by blood collection technicians represented by AFSCME Local 1205 members in Wisconsin.

We are approaching the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King and AFSCME standing together in Memphis on behalf of sanitation workers. This was a watershed moment in our nation’s history.

AFSCME PEOPLE is pleased to announce our endorsement of Patty Schachtner in Senate District 10 (SD10).

 “AFSCME is looking for candidates around the state who will champion our values and fight for working people in Madison. We saw all that and more in Patty,” said Executive Director of AFSCME Wisconsin, Rick Badger. “We encourage our members to support Patty in her bid for State Senate.”

AFSCME Wisconsin is strongly opposed to proposed Republican legislation (LRB 4052 & 4827) designed to remove the freedom of local governments to manage workers the way they see fit.

LRB 4052 & 4827 reaches deep into the rights of local governments and restricts their ability to legislate fair benefits and treatment of workers. In addition, this legislation curtails the ability of municipalities to pass legislation regarding the minimum wage, occupational licenses and other programs that have had demonstrated success in creating jobs.
