|AFSCME Local 668|
The next Local 668 General Membership meeting will be on Thursday, February 26, 2015 beginning at 5:00 PM in the Hennessey Room at Council 5. The Council 5 offices are located at 300 Hardman Av. S., South St. Paul.
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
Union members are happier with their lives than nonunion workers. Makes sense, right? Now comes a study that proves it.
The differences are clear. Some legislators agree with AFSMCE and our MoveMN partners in pursuing long-term, sustainable solutions for Minnesota transportation. Others just want to keep patching over the problem. In fact, they see it as an opportunity to raid education and health care, and to cut costs at MnDOT. In other words, they want to pay for it with our wages, benefits and jobs, and with the services we provide.
The legacy of Nellie Stone Johnson – Minnesota’s pioneering union, education, and civil rights leader – is about to reach a new level with the placement of a memorial in the State Capitol. Here's how you can help it happen.
AFSCME International threw down the challenge: It dared locals to sign up 50,000 new members before its July convention. Members in Minnesota and across the country responded – big time.
