Council 4’s Next Wave Committee is currently recruiting young activists to join the effort to strengthen our union. The committee is part of an effort across our International Union focused on recruiting, training and mentoring AFSCME members age 35 and under.

“The Next Wave Committee plans to initiate educational and mobilization programs for the whole union,” said AFSCME Local 562 member Patrick Kilby. “We hope to be a place where younger members feel they can have a voice in their union.”
