AFSCME Local 800 members rallied outside the Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles (JFSLA) building Tuesday to demand a fair contract.

Members of AFSCME Local 858 have ratified a new Union contract with the City of Pasadena.

The California legislature has provided California employees with additional paid sick leave benefits to combat the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The California legislature passed SB 95 on Thursday, 19 March 2021, and Governor Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law just one day later, on Friday, 20 March 2021. SB 95 provides supplemental sick leave benefits to certain employees needing to take leave for various reasons prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has been happening for months across the country, and Union members have been a major part of the process.

We knew it was going to take a large number of people to help vaccinate millions of people in a short span of time and AFSCME members have stepped up to do just that. In Anaheim, Calif. AFSCME Local 2002 members began volunteering at the vaccination site at Disneyland in January and at the Anaheim Convention Center in February.

After a very long fight, Local 800 has finally settled two contracts with JVS SoCal, formerly known as Jewish Vocational Service.

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!
