A Message from your President

I hope you and your families are keeping safe during this pandemic. I am Martin Diggs the President of ACE-AFSCME Local 2250. I am sending you a heartfelt thank you out to all my brothers and sisters for doing a great job. Many of you do fantastic job at work with very little recognition. But I am here to say thank you for what you do. Many of you telework or go into a building each and every week. Please keep up the good work you are doing as there are people out here that appreciate what you do.

As we move closer to Election Day on November 3, AFSCME International and I are urging you to vote for Biden and Harris ticket. This is the presidential candidate your union is supporting. If you do not know Governor Hogan has vetoed Maryland’s blueprint for education. We need individuals in place that will support your ideas of living a happy, healthy and meaningful life. 

I’ve heard members say, “What is the union doing for me”? - never forget YOU are the union. If there are issues arising don’t wait until a chapter meeting. Check out our website and under resources there is a link to complete an employee intake form. Send us an email detailing the particulars of your issue. Phone calls are not enough we need a paper trail.

As we draw closer to school reopening, please know that your union is working with county officials to make sure you come back to safe working environment. We all understand the need to have proper PPE, cleaning and disinfecting of buildings and vehicles. Know that your local in well engaged with management on many issues. But if you have any suggestions please feel free to reach out to your union using our website: ace-afscme.org.

Remember we can all do great things as we stand ACE-AFSCME strong.

In Solidarity, 

Martin Diggs, ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 President
