Build Power at Your Workplace. Form a Union.

Why Join?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Are you hurting from a lack of quality, affordable healthcare coverage?
  • Have you ever been unfairly disciplined by your supervisor or forced to accept a demotion, suspension or other punishment you didn’t deserve?

If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s time to consider forming a union with AFSCME. With more than 1.6 million active and retired members nationwide (including 30,000 active members in Connecticut) AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country. 


We consistently fight for and secure the best wages, benefits and working conditions for our members. Because so much of our members’ workplace rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we also maintain a strong presence in the corridors of government, fighting to protect our members and holding politicians accountable for their actions.

We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

Get in touch with us to have a preliminary conversation and to learn more. All conversations are strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward until you are ready.

When you and your co-workers come together to form a union, you get the right to negotiate with your employer over wages, benefits and working conditions.

No matter what the industry you are in, or the labor law that covers it, the process for forming a union is similar.
