Paraprofessional educators at Prince George's County Public Schools are required to pass the ParaPro Assessment test or earn at least 48 college credits by June 2022 to retain their positions.

The COVID-19 pandemic arrived at a time when our nation’s health care workers were already experiencing burnout.

While the school year looks different in 2020 with many schools closed to in-person instruction, ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 members are still on the front lines providing essential services to kids and families in Prince George’s County. Among the many Local 2250 members who have gone above and beyond this year, the food service workers continue to ensure that students in the county receive meals that they and their families depend on.

There are countless reasons against voting for Donald Trump in November. But this election isn’t just about Donald Trump. AFSCME President Lee Saunders explains why working people should cast their ballots for Joe Biden for president and Kamala Harris for vice president:

Nursing homes have been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 40% of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. have been linked to nursing homes. But according to a recent study, one factor that determines how fatal a COVID-19 outbreak will be is whether that nursing home is unionized.

Throughout my son’s long career at AFSCME, there have been countless times when I’ve seen Lee proudly wearing an AFSCME T-shirt. Often, these T-shirts feature slogans like “Rise Up” and “Never Quit.”

To Lee, these are much more than just slogans. They’re principles that guide him as president of AFSCME. As his mom, the meaning behind these phrases evoke a long and powerful legacy within our family.

Public approval of labor unions is at its highest level in 17 years, with nearly two out of three Americans (65%) expressing support of unions, according to the latest Gallup poll.
