How to Join Council 93

It starts with a conversation. Why join AFSCME?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Are you hurting from a lack of quality, affordable healthcare coverage?
  • Have you ever been unfairly disciplined by your supervisor or forced to accept a demotion, suspension or other punishment you didn’t deserve?

If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s time to consider forming a union with AFSCME. With more than 1.6 million active and retired members nationwide, AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country.

We consistently fight for and secure the best wages, benefits and working conditions for our members. Since so much of public service workers’ rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we maintain a strong presence in the corridors of government, fighting to protect our members and holding politicians accountable for their actions. We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

Get in touch with us to have a preliminary conversation and to learn more. All conversations are strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward until you are ready.

Simply call 617-367-6045 or email to start the conversation.

Rest assured that all emails and calls will be kept strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward unless and until you are ready.

If you decide that our union is right for you, the experienced team at AFSCME will take it from there. We will work directly with you to start the process and most importantly, see it through until the end. We won't sugar-coat this for you. The path towards forming a union can sometimes be long and a bit difficult. But in many instances, things move quickly and smoothly. Either way, we will lead the charge and give you and your colleagues the support you need to make it happen. There's one thing we can promise: the rewards of being an AFSCME member are well worth the investment of time and effort. Let us prove it to you

No matter what the industry you are in, or the labor law that covers it, the process for forming a union is similar: 

  • Get together with your co-workers who may share a common interest in organizing a union.
  • Talk to a union organizer in order to strategize and to learn the next steps.
  • Talk to your co-workers to build support for the union.
  • Show that support through an election or a card-check once you have a strong majority.

Once your union is official, you’ll choose your leaders and negotiate a contract. The process is democratic, and the more inclusive you can be, the stronger your union will be.
