Dear AFSCME Council 93 Members:
Welcome to the Council 93 website!We at Council 93 know how hard you work each and every day on the job. As your Executive Director and your President, we want to assure you that we are continuously striving to match your hard work by finding new, better and more efficient ways to provide you with the quality representation and service that you deserve.
These are difficult times for union members – especially those who work in the public sector. It seems as though every day we face a new or renewed attack on our collective bargaining rights, healthcare and pensions. And, as municipal, state and county governments struggle with decreased revenues, the threat of privatization is looming constantly around us. Now more than ever, we need to stay unified, strong and informed.
As we work together to move our union forward, we encourage all AFSCME members to visit this site on a regular basis to stay informed about issues of importance to AFSCME members - within our region and across the nation.
Visitors will also find detailed information on Council 93 training programs, volunteer opportunities, political rallies and other important events and initiatives.
Despite the many challenges we face, we are very optimistic about the future of our union. Thank you for all that you do for our region, our states and our communities. It is an honor and privilege to serve as leaders of our union.
Mark Bernard, Executive Director
Charles C. Owen, Jr, President
