Lori Condinus

Business Representative

“I’m kind of all over,” said Condinus who began her new position in December of 2019.

A veteran union administrator with more than 30 years in organized labor, Condinus worked extensively in the hospitality industry. She started her career at the Anaheim Hilton and served as a shop steward for UNITE HERE Local 681 before it merged with Local 11. IN addition to leading campaigns in Orange County, Condinus helped develop UNITE HERE’s diversity program and has also helped to mentor African Americans who want to enter the hospitality industry.

She moves from the private to the public sector with a sense of excitement. The new position  will present yet another opportunity “to right the wrongs of the employer and speak for those folks who felt they had no voice.”

“AFSCME has had a storied history in the Civil Rights movement and with Dr. King and that has always appealed to me,” Condinus said. “It’s my goal to help connect the Local with communities so we can forge a path forward and help the crisis we’re in now, with COVID and with racial inequities. I think AFSCME can really be a leader in that and help come up with some solutions.”
