Members of AFSCME District Councils 33, 47 and 1199C stood with Jim Kenney this week as they endorsed Kenney for Mayor in the Democratic Primary. The election is Tuesday, May 19th.
Many candidates running for City Council at Large shared their views with members of DC 47 this weekend. DC 47 President Fred Wright is seen here shaking hands with Democratic Council At Large candidate Derek Green. The PEOPLE Committee has heard from candidates for Mayor and City Council. Candidates for other offices are also scheduled. Check out those dates at the link below:
The DC 47 PEOPLE Committee held their Fish Fry Fundraiser and raised money for their legislative and political activities.
PEOPLE is Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality.
PEOPLE is also the official name of AFSCME’s political action committee and is registered with the Federal Election Commission. Federal law and some state laws prohibit the use of union dues money to support political candidates. Campaign contributions by AFSCME to these candidates must come from a separate voluntary fund.
Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future.
There is nothing more important than staying safe on the job. Our lives depend on it. That is why, as AFSCME members, we have access to some of the best workplace health and safety resources available.
