About

Fighting for Candidates Who Will Fight for Us

For public employees, the people we elect determine the quality of our lives and our livelihood. Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future. Unless, that is, we hold them accountable. Our activism in politics is incredibly important.Through PEOPLE we help elect candidates who stand for what matters to AFSCME members:

  • Strong contracts
  • No contracting out
  • Affordable health care
  • Retirement security
  • No cuts to vital public services

Politics is part of AFSCME’s DNA. Federal election law and some state laws prohibit using dues for campaign contributions and other political activities. AFSCME PEOPLE enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.
