Welcome to Council 93!

Last week, after a 68% to 32% NLRB election victory, 145 Research and Laboratory Assistants at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA are now proud union members with AFSCME Council 93. 

In honor of EMS Week, we wanted to highlight some of the work that AFSCME Local 4911 members have been doing in New Hampshire to help in the COVID-19 fight. EMS workers have been on the the front of the front lines in the fight against COVID-19 since day one. They put themselves and their families at risk to treat our families and keep our communities safe. They are front line heroes who deserve our gratitude for their hardwork and dedication. 

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 Memorial Day 2021 arrives at a moment of the greatest urgency, when the front lines of the war against COVID-19 run through America’s workplaces.

Help stop privatization in Salem!

The Salem School Committee is hearing a report on an RFP to outsource School Transportation services, threatening the jobs of twenty-two Local 294 members.

We are asking for support from other AFSCME members and community allies. Please attend the Virtual School Committee Meeting on Monday, April 26th at 7pm!

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.
