National Law Enforcement Week gives us an opportunity to recognize the sacrifices and contributions of America’s public safety professionals. We honor and respect the thousands of AFSCME public safety professionals who never quit on our communities, and we commit to fighting for them so they can do their jobs safely and effectively. 

The AFSCME Council 4 Retirees Chapter has cancelled its April 26, 2023, membership meeting.

For more information on the retiree chapter, contact President Tom Ledoux, (860) 225-7656 or [email protected].

Every year on April 22 — Earth Day — communities across the globe celebrate our environment and commit to making it healthy for future generations.

This Earth Day, I’m thinking about the 50,000 AFSCME members who work in green jobs, protecting and caring for our planet. Whether they’re leading nature walks in our county or state parks, making public buildings more energy efficient and resilient to climate disasters, or making sure our waterways are clean, AFSCME members are at the heart of healthy communities.

The Council 4 PEOPLE Committee elected new leadership on April 16 during the Council 4 biennial conference, including officers for each congressional district and the statewide steering committee.

As dedicated and active participants of our labor-to-labor election program, PEOPLE officers lead the committee’s electoral efforts in interviewing and endorsing labor-friendly candidates. Regardless of the office the candidates are running for, it is imperative for elected officials to support Council 4’s mission of protecting and expanding pay, retirement security and health care.
