AFSCME Local 34 and 2822 are organizing for a strike because we both deserve a good contract and the best way to prevent a strike is to be PREPARED for a strike. Join as a Strike Captain to take action or join a Sub-Committee of the Strike & Actions Committee. You may sign up for more than one item. 😊
Strike Captain: You will be trained up to take actions to support Hennepin County workers in getting the best contract possible!
Organizing & Actions Committee: We will be planning any actions that can put pressure on the employer to do the right thing.
Member Outreach and Contact: We will contact members to both inform members about union updates and mobilize them for events and actions
Communications Committee: Keeping our internal messaging on point to include social media, emails, and other communications to Members
Media & Public Messaging Committee: We want to get the message across to local media what is happening. We want as many communities in the Twin Cities to know that Hennepin County needs to take care of the workers who help Hennepin County.
Coalitions Committee: We want to build a coalition of supportive organizations and powerful elected officials who will stand by Hennepin County workers as we work to get a fair contract.
Strike Prep Committee: We will plan the preparations for a potential strike to include Strike Captain training and recruiting additional Strike Captains from the membership.
Resources Committee: We will create and update a Resource Manual for Hennepin County workers who will need these resources during a potential strike.
Logistics Committee: We will organize and implement the activities necessary during the day(s) of a strike and any other necessary actions.
