Brothers and Sisters,
Below please find a few videos & highlights from the 42nd International AFSCME Convention 7/18-7/22. This years convention theme was “NEVER QUIT”. The international staff did an excellent job putting on a very exciting, informative, and worth while convention. On each day of the convention work shops were held such as talkin’ union to new members, Never quit and the AFSCME brand, lifting the curtain on dark money, and many other instructional classes to help grow our union & protect our jobs.
