The Government Pension Offset (GPO) and the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) to Social Security are a threat to all working people and are completely unacceptable.

The GPO and WEP wrongfully strip hard-working people of the full Social Security benefits they earned and paid for, simply because they are also entitled to a public pension benefit.

If politicians are willing to cut the hard-earned Social Security benefits of some public service retirees, they'll do it to others too.

Workers in health care and social service industries are a big step closer to having safer workplaces.

On Friday, the House of Representatives passed the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R.1195) by a bipartisan vote of 254 to 166. The bill requires the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue a standard to prevent workplace violence in health care and social service assistance settings.

We know have a NEW BILL NUMBER and committee assignment for the AFSCME Council 93 bill that would provide a three-year pension credit for essential public-sector workers who were required to work outside of their homes during the pandemic.  

On this National Library Workers Day, AFSCME library workers deserve to be recognized for the value they bring to our diverse communities and the vital services they provide anyone who asks for help.

Over the past 20 years, the fund has provided more than $100,000 in scholarships to AFSCME members, their spouses, children, stepchildren, grandchildren and legal dependents.
