AFSCME Local 4041 Member Volunteering To Get State Workers to Vote

Dozens of AFSCME Local 4041 members from Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS), Local 4041 Retirees, and Retiree Subchapter 153 came together last week to encourage state employees to vote this election.

State workers in Nevada have never been closer to securing the right to collective bargain, so AFSCME member took it on themselves to ensuring worker-friendly candidates are elected. "The votes of over 35,000 state workers and public sector retirees throughout the state can make all the difference, and it’s up to us encourage them to cast their ballot for labor-friendly candidates," said Jason Haenel, Policial Action Representative. 

Within their department,  DCFS members were able to make over 200 voter packets for employees in other departments such Mobile Crisis Responses, Oasis, Desert Willow Department of Child Service, and Child Care licensing to motivate their fellow state workers to vote this election.

Meanwhile, Local 4041 Retiree and Retiree Subchapter 153 members have been hard at work phone banking state employees to inform them about the candidates that support their rights to collective bargain!

Thank you all for your hard work! Let’s keep it up!
