|Local 2700 United Clerical, Technical & Specialized Employees|
Welcome to AFSCME Local 2700
Employees shouldn’t have to risk their health to do their jobs. Four out of 10 private-sector workers come to work sick – or don’t get paid. The picture is noticeably different for state and local government workers, where union membership is stronger. Nine out of 10 workers in state and local government receive paid sick leave and, of those who belong to a union, it’s nearly everyone – 97 percent.
Pregnancy should not cost women their paychecks. But that's exactly what happened to UPS delivery driver Peggy Young when she became pregnant in 2006.
We know that money can be a big obstacle when it comes to higher education. That’s why AFSCME provides scholarships to help members and their families reach their educational goals.
We are proud to re-introduce the TIELINE newsletter. Members will receive it by email. Please, be sure you keep us updated on your current email address by contacting the Local's office. read more
