AFSCME President Lee Saunders called the victories of the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s Senate runoff elections “a bold mandate for change.”

Greetings ACE-AFSMCE Local 2250 Members -

Here’s a crucial reason for working people to do all they can to help Jon Ossoff and the Rev.

It’s easy to say that the 2020 election is the most important of our lifetimes, but hearing this firsthand from AFSCME Retirees, many of whom have dedicated their lives to public service and making America a better place to live, shows the urgency to us all.

MSEA's WCC Leadership Cohort aims to inspire and empower women leaders at all levels of our unified organization through the 3P’s: 

If there’s one thing the 2020 election has in spades, it’s choices – and not just the choices between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Mike Pence and Kamala Harris, and choices up and down the ballot. In a year when our jobs, our families, and every aspect of our lives have felt the impact of a pandemic, there are lots of ways to make your voice heard at the polls. 

Please join us for the next General Membership meeting Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 6-8PM. See agenda below.

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.
