Why Join?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Are you concerned about short staffing hurting your ability to deliver the best patient care?
  • 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 and 300,000 health care members, AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country.

Together we consistently fight for and secure the best wages, benefits and working conditions. Since so much of public service workers’ rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we 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.

Whether you're a registered nurse, tech, or a housekeeper, all hospital workers deserve a voice to ensure our patients are getting the care they need. That's why across the country we're coming together and exercising our freedom to be heard.
