Council 5 has a security system that is in effect after 4:30 PM.  To gain admittance after 4:30 PM, you will need to dial "21" on the keypad next to the doors off the courtyard on the south side of the building.  Someone will then meet you at the doors and let you in the building.

 "In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, as 'right to work'. It provides no 'rights' and no 'works'. It's purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining... We demand this fraud be stopped."

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1961

Council 5 wraps up a month of volunteer action with a celebration, march, and community service project in St. Paul on Saturday April 25. The “Keep the Dream Alive” activities publicly demonstrate how we, as AFSCME members, improve lives not only on the job, but also on our own time, in our own communities.
