Iowa Labor Events This Weekend


On January 5th, public employees will begin working with Governor Branstad to determine how effectively we can continue keeping our neighborhoods safe, healthy and strong.  Unfortunately, Governor Branstad has chosen to vilify and attack public employees in order to score political points.

AFSCME will speak to how we are ready to work with the governor in the coming days, but will not stand for a double standard that puts the governor’s cronies and friends ahead of Iowa’s middle class and our communities.

Join our Sisters and Brothers at one of these events:
