AFSCME President Lee Saunders congratulated Nicole Berner, a longtime labor lawyer and general counsel of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), on being confirmed to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

Each year, the AFSCME Council 93 Memorial Scholarship Fund provides five individual one-thousand dollar ($1,000) scholarships to students enrolled in a two-year or four-year accredited college, recognized technical, or trade school. Awarded in memory of all of our departed members, the scholarship is renewed for each year of attendance. Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships have been awarded to deserving AFSCME families.

In this year’s State of the Union speech, President Joe Biden highlighted his administration’s achievements over the past three years and vowed to continue fighting for working people.

AFSCME applauds his accomplishments and strongly supports the Biden-Harris administration’s vision for the future, which includes defending our nation’s democracy, protecting a woman’s right to choose and making the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes, among other things.
