About AFSCME And Local 449

United We BargainAFSCME is the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the largest public service union in the country. Over 100,000 college and university staff around the country are also a part of AFSCME.

AFSCME is a union made up of a diverse group of people who share a common commitment to public service. We see the big picture and gladly accept the responsibility of guarding and nurturing it — not because we expect to be recognized for our sacrifice, but because we know the job needs to be done. That’s why we’re in the public service — to keep our families safe and make our communities strong.

While we work for justice in the workplace, we advocate for prosperity and opportunity for all of America’s working families. We not only stand for fairness at the bargaining table — we fight for fairness at the ballot box and in the halls of government.
