|Fulton County Employees Local 3|
U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez made a strong case for the value of labor unions following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2014 Union Membership Report.The report highlights that the median weekly earnings of nonunion workers ($763) were only 79 percent of earnings for workers who were union members ($970). If you do the math, it amounts to $10,000 more a year for union members.
The 2015 AFSCME Women’s Leadership Academy will be held from June to December of this year.
