In the City of Los Angeles at the beautiful Venice Beach, zip code 90291, AFSCME Local 741 member Joe McCalla talks

In late January and early February, two historic storms hit the City of San Diego causing millions of dollars’ worth of damage.

We started 2024 off with an amazing organizing blitz for our Los Angeles City Local Unions.

An LA City for all of us! That's what the Fix LA Alliance is fighting for.

Yesterday, we joined the Fix LA Alliance rally at Echo Park United Methodist Church to call for bold solutions to the housing crisis.

We’re calling for permanent supportive housing so that our members who work for the City can live in the City. We are also demanding competitive wage increases and a solution to the short staffing crisis.

We are looking for volunteer member organizers (VMO)! VMOs help strengthen our union and help us build power for a better future. If you want to help make your union stronger and build solidarity, become a VMO. We will be hosting a VMO training on January 6 & 7 so join us to learn more about how to be a VMO. Contact Joniesha@afscme36.org if you're interested!

Members of AFSCME Local 3090, AFSCME Local 2626, and SEIU 721 rallied at the Central Library on Wednesday to draw attention to low wages, short staffing, and safety concerns.

In the City of Los Angeles at the beautiful Elysian Park, zip code 90012, AFSCME Local 3090 members talk about the work they do as park activity monitors, as well as the benefits of attending LA City Council meetings. 

Members of AFSCME Local 2076 voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new contract negotiated with Orange County, after four months of negotiations and multiple workplace actions.

The new three-year contract includes pay increases totaling 13% over the three-year period, as well as an additional $0.75 per hour for employees who work an assigned shift at a jail facility.

AFSCME Local 3634 sponsored its second Women's Empowerment event this past Saturday. Women from different Council 36 Locals attended the inspiring event and heard about ways to deal with stress and find peace from Dr. Maribel Contreras. They also learned how to make candles from Tunai Anderson.

Since August, our LA City Local Unions have been meeting with City officials to negotiate a new contract that has strong, competitive wages, addresses the understaffing crisis, expands healthcare, protects our secure retirement, and wins us an even stronger union voice on the job. We can only accomplish this by standing in solidarity with each other, because our collective union power is what is going to win us a strong contract.

Join a rolling rally near you and show your support for our LA City Local Unions!

Members of AFSCME Local 2076, which represents Orange County eligibility technicians (ET), addressed the Orange County Board of Supervisors Tuesday to further call attention to their need for a fair contract that includes wage increases and more staffing.
