Congratulations to Local 609 members! In 2019, employees at Public Counsel voted overwhelmingly to join AFSCME District Council 36. Now, two years later, they have ratified their first contract.

The members of Local 609 began negotiating last year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that did not stop them from negotiating a strong first contract.
