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.

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.

After weeks of meeting with department leaders, Correctional Health Services (CHS) employees have won the battle to get back partial telework.
