Join us on Thursday, May 13 at 6PM for our next Political & Legislative Action Committee meeting. This meeting will focus on CA state legislation.

On Friday, April 30, 2021, AFSCME Local 685 Member DSO Michael Wall, a loving father and brother, who was a 14-year veteran of the L.A.

Council 36’s very own Leticia Munguia is running to represent California State Assembly District 79.

She has spent her career advocating to improve public education, expand healthcare, build strong communities and ensure equity in the workplace. Not only is Leticia an outspoken leader, she is dedicated to teaching people how to advocate for themselves.

Please consider supporting her campaign. We need a strong labor advocate in office!

Council 36 is sad to hear about the passing of Sandra Fox.

Sandra Fox was the President of Local 2076 from 2010-2014 as well as Vice-President of Council 36. She was also a Local steward. She will be greatly missed.

All six Los Angeles City locals affiliated with AFSCME District Council 36 have ratified the tentative agreement.

Floylaina “Flo” Smith grew up in Compton, CA and later relocated to San Bernardino County in 1997. She received her Associates Degrees in Administration of Justice and Early Childhood Education in 2013. She currently works as a Police Records Clerk for the city of Dessert Hot Springs. She joins the Council 36 Executive Board as Vice President of District 3. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time and making unforgettable memories with family and friends. 

Welcome Flo!

We're requesting your support for 90 workers employed in two separate bargaining units at JVS SoCal (formerly Jewish Vocational Services) represented by AFSCME Local 800. This includes the case managers, job developers and clerical staff working in the LA County GAIN Program. Negotiations have been ongoing for over a year and JVS SoCal is taking the most hostile and anti-working family positions that our union has ever experienced with them or any other entity.

No one could have predicted that in 2020 the City of Los Angeles would have to deal with a global pandemic that would lead to one of the worst financial crises of our time.

Los Angeles County & Court employees received a pay raise! Congratulations to our members who received a 2.65% or 3% pay raise effective January 1, 2021. This is just one of many wins for our members.

Please note: As a result of these pay raises, AFSCME members working for these LA County locals will see a nominal increase in union membership dues. We wanted to bring this to your attention so that you can understand and track these changes on your paycheck.

It is with great sadness that Council 36 has learned the passing of former Local 3947 President Dr. Roosevelt Peters Jr.

Dr. Peters worked for the City of Compton as an Accountant from July 1, 1998 until his retirement on October 5, 2016. He was instrumental in the City of Compton becoming an affiliate of AFSCME District Council 36. Dr. Roosevelt believed in helping others and worked tiresly as President of AFSCME Local 3947 and as a Vice President of AFSCME District Council 36.

Dr. Peters passed away on December 19, 2020 and will surely be missed.
