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.
