AFSCME San Antonio

Despite high levels of stress on the job, many state and local workers say they highly value serving the public and their communities and feel generally satisfied with their jobs.

AFSCME members who work in health care and social services jobs face workplace violence daily. Now they are closer to having it.

On September 30, the COSA recognized AFSCME San Antonio as the designated union representative for all Clerical, Paraprofessional, Professional, Protective Services, and Service and Maintenance employees. The city will hold an election to determine if we will represent the final seat held for Skilled Craft and Technicians on the EMC.

We, the undersigned, Skilled Craft and Technicians, are committed to voting yes in the Employee Management Committee (EMC) election for AFSCME San Antonio Local 2021. We believe in the importance of speaking with one unified voice at the EMC table to secure improvements in the step pay system so that experienced employees are adequately rewarded; regular cost of living adjustments (COLAs) for all employees; hold the line on healthcare costs; and create a fairer and safer workplace.

Voting for the Skilled Craft and Technicians will begin Thursday, October 24 and last through Wednesday, October 30.

We, employees united in AFSCME San Antonio Local 2021, deserve a real COLA that truly keeps up with inflation; stable healthcare costs; and a restructuring of the Step Pay Plan to increase salaries for experienced employees. We also believe expenses that are necessary to do our jobs (from parking to supplies) should be fully reimbursed. Sign our petition and urge the Mayor and Council to pass a budget that fully addresses these issues.
