Take Action

Why Join Local 2250?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Are you hurting from a lack of quality, affordable healthcare coverage?
  • Have you ever been unfairly disciplined by your supervisor or forced to accept a demotion, suspension or other punishment you didn’t deserve?

If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s time to consider forming a union with AFSCME. With more than 1.6 million active and retired members nationwide, AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country.

We consistently fight for and secure the best wages, benefits and working conditions for our members. Since so much of public service workers’ rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we maintain a strong presence in the corridors of government, fighting to protect our members and holding politicians accountable for their actions. We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

Get in touch with us to have a preliminary conversation and to learn more. All conversations are strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward until you are ready.

School Support Staff of PGCPS are the Unsung Heroes in Education

Many have risked their lives daily during this pandemic by working on the frontlines, while others have proved to be an essential part in the operation of schools. The dedication of these workers doesn’t deserve to be rewarded with furloughs, reductions in staff or pink slips.

The School and Safety Report from CEO Dr. Monica Goldson recommends:

  • Putting the safety of 131,657 students in jeopardy
  • Affecting PGCPS support staff’s ability to earn and maintain a living wage
  • Damaging student relationships with our trained support staff

Tell the PGCPS Board of Education and the County Executive to vote NO on these proposals!

The Board of Education must act now to ensure that students don’t continue to feel the impact of losing vital support staff just when they need them the most. Every support staff member matters for the safety and education of our students. Join us in the fight today for a better tomorrow.
