AFSCME 2020 Convention Goes Virtual

From President Lee Saunders:

Yesterday, the International Executive Board voted to make the 44th International Convention a “virtual convention,” and to not have an on-site convention in Los Angeles in August. This decision was made to protect us all during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Rest assured, this virtual convention will fulfill all the requirements laid out in AFSCME’s constitution. Details of how the convention will operate are currently being developed, and we will share more information when it is available.

In the meantime, all of the International Union's offices -- Headquarters, Regional and Field Offices -- remain closed indefinitely. Our staff continues to work remotely, as we do our part to flatten the curve while maintaining the work of our union.

We will continue to fight for all 1.4 million AFSCME members during this unprecedented public health crisis, doing everything possible to ensure that they have the tools and resources to protect their communities.
