About Us

We are AFSCME 

"One day longer, one day stronger."

When we organize for power, we win.

WSEU AFSCME Local 579 represents employees on the UW Oshkosh, UW Fond Du Lac, UW Fox Valley campuses, as well as Agencies In Fond Du Lac, Outagamie & Winnebago Counties in the state of Wisconsin.

AFSCME is the union that honors solidarity without conformity, drawing each member’s story into a force of experience and commitment that can’t be ignored. That’s how we win better lives for ourselves, our families, and our communities. For people proudly committed to public service, we never quit.

With more than 1.6 million active and retired members nationwide, AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country. Our union consistently fights for and secures the best wages, benefits and working conditions for our members. Since so much of public service workers’ rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we maintain a strong presence in the corridors of government, fighting to protect our members and holding politicians accountable for their actions. We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

Because of Act 10, Local 579 does not have the right to bargain a contract, but we continue to advocate and represent in the workplace. Our member leaders are trained how to do it, and federal law and UW System policy protect us when we serve in these roles

We know we are stronger when we stand together. We believe in dignity at work, a fair wage, and security in retirement.

We are AFSCME, join us.
