Members of AFSCME Local 127, 

          Last week, the Leaders and Delegates of AFSCME Local 127 attended the AFSCME 45th Biennial Convention in Philadelphia!

AFSCME Local 127 recently held a new employee orientation. 

Thank you to everyone that showed up to hear about all of the benefits of the Union!

As the world marked the anniversary of the official start of the coronavirus pandemic Thursday, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law and offered words of hope to a weary nation.

Local 127 Business Representative Leticia Munguia is running to represent State Assembly District 79.

Please join us for a meet & greet with Leticia on Friday, March 12 @ 6PM via Zoom or in-person. 

Office address: 3737 Camino Del Rio So. Suite 400 San Diego, CA 92108

Council 36 and Local 127's very own Leticia Munguia is running to represent California State Assembly District 79.

She has spent her career advocating to improve public education, expand healthcare, build strong communities and ensure equity in the workplace. Not only is Leticia an outspoken leader, she is dedicated to teaching people how to advocate for themselves.

Please vote for her on Tuesday, April 6. We need a strong labor advocate in office!

AFSCME President Lee Saunders praised the House of Representatives for passing the American Rescue Plan on Saturday and urged the Senate to follow suit as soon as possible.

There is good news for AFSCME members looking to pursue higher education. AFSCME Free College has made its bachelor’s degree completion program a permanent benefit.

That means that AFSCME members and their families can earn a bachelor’s degree for free, making an even wider choice of career options a possibility for more people.

Here’s a sure sign of new leadership in Washington. There’s a renewed push to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour, an idea that went nowhere when the Trump administration and anti-worker members of Congress were in power.

The coronavirus pandemic won’t be controlled until states, cities, towns and schools – and particularly health departments – have the funding they need from the federal government, says AFSCME Retiree Sue Conard.

Conard should know. She spent 24 years as a public health nurse serving Wisconsin’s La Crosse County. One of her many areas of expertise? Immunization.
