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.

Lead investigator counselors work with students every day to keep PG County Public Schools safe and secure. They build relationships with and mentor students, coach athletic teams, and keep other staff and school personnel safe.

Now CEO Dr. Monica Goldson wants to reduce the already small number of lead investigator counselors in our district. She has decided to:

  • Move these employees from 12-month status to 10-month status in the future, which will impact their take-home pay
  • Demote workers to positions with severely lower wages
  • Not honoring the negotiated agreement approved by the Board of Education by refusing to retain lead investigator counselors’ current pay for one year

Tell the PGCPS Board of Education and the County Executive to REJECT these decisions!

The Board of Education must act now to ensure that schools remain safe, that students keep their mentors and the Union contract is upheld. Every support staff member matters for the safety and education of our students. Join us in the fight today for a better tomorrow.
