Join AFSCME 65!

Why Organize:

The world of work is changing—and changing fast! But one thing never seems to change: Too many employers don't treat their employees fairly & our middle class is shrinking.

Workers across Minnesota, North Dakota & South Dakota are looking to change things up too!  In order for workers to gain respect, as well as assure fairness & dignity in the workplace; they have decided they to join together to form a union – and that union is AFSCME.

AFSCME members win concrete changes in their workplaces, and they win greater dignity and respect on the job. By joining together to form an AFSCME local, new AFSCME members have won:

  • A strong voice in the workplace
  • Fair grievance procedures
  • Wage increases
  • Benefit improvements
  • Better staffing levels

Choosing AFSCME is the first step to success for many public service employees, healthcare workers, non-profit & helping professions: AFSCME has the best record in the nation for helping workers secure representation rights by winning representation elections and settling first contracts.

At AFSCME Council 65; we are social workers, direct care workers, nurses & healthcare workers, early childhood educators, correctional & law enforcement officers, maintenance workers, judicial & courthouse workers, school bus drivers, clerical workers, lawyers, paraprofessionals, human services & highway workers, and much, much more.

Together, we have the strength to improve our jobs, our work and our lives!
