    We have begun the process of welcoming all Retired Public Employees of Nevada into our organization. Our constitution needed updating and approval by the membership.  AFSCME International assisted us in getting  this done.  On September 11, 2017, the membership was contacted by conference call and advised of the proposed changes.  On September 18, 2017, the membership was again contacted and asked to voted on the proposal.  The proposal was approved approved without a single no vote. The revised constituion will be posted on this web page under "RESOURCES" once a signed copy is received from the International.

    Now, the pension is on a path to running out of money. To turn this around, we have a board of activist members who, along with other members, keep track of legislation and ongoing budget issues. We attend meetings at ERS, we attend hearings at the legislature, we testify at hearings and we meet with our legislators.  We write letters to our legislators and to the editors of our local newspapers, send emails and make phone calls.  We are committed to doing everything we can think of to keep our 70-year old retirement system alive!!

    We were also privileged to have legendary  labor leader and civil rights activist Bill Lucy address the Council 36 delegates, reinforcing the theme that AFSCME can survive and even thrive with concerted one on one organizing in our Local Unions.

    While voting rights are being rolled back in other states due to right-wing voter suppression campaigns, Padilla intends to reverse the tide in California. He is authoring, sponsoring or supporting a number of bills designed to enfranchise voters, particularly in working families and communities of color, by making the process of casting ballots easier and more accessible.

    MISSION STATEMENT ------------------------------------------------------------

    An affiliate of AFSCME International in Washington D.C., AFSCME District Council 36 was chartered in 1969 and today extends across the Southland, from Los Angeles to Orange County to San Diego.  Our democratic, member-driven union advocates for fairness, opportunity and prosperity for our members, because at Council 36, workers’ rights are human rights.  Particularly in this pro-corporate political climate in which we face an unprecedented economic divide between the haves and have-nots, Council 36 is committed to defending the rights of working Americans to live and retire in dignity.
