The American Federation of State County Municipal Employees (AFSCME) has 1.6 million members nationwide, and in Nevada, represents more than 17,000 state workers, ranging from social service providers and corrections officers to maintenance and administrative staff and so many more who provide the essential services that keep our state running.
In Nevada, AFSCME advocates for a fair and productive work environment, excellence in the services we provide and prosperity and opportunity for all working families. AFSCME negotiates strong contracts with guaranteed wage increases, protects employee rights, settles grievances, and fights for health, retirement and other benefits for state employees.
Our members are a diverse group of people who share a common bond – a commitment to public service. For us, serving the public is not just a job, it’s a calling: to keep Nevada Strong, to keep our families safe and to enhance our quality of life. We not only stand for fairness in the workplace, we fight for fairness in our communities and in the halls of government. When workers come together, we all win. A collective voice brings real Power of the People.
