Local 1624 Members: 

   In light of AFSCME International's recent endorsement of Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, we want to make it clear that Local 1624 has no part in those decisions. AFSCME International does not always represent our views. Our fight is here in Texas. We are focused on keeping a majority on Commissioner's Court and City Council accountable to workers. We encourage our members to support the Presidential Candidate of their choice. Type your paragraph here.

Fighting for Candidates Who Will Fight for Us

~For public employees, the people we elect determine the quality of our lives and our livelihood. Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future. Unless, that is, we hold them accountable. Our activism in politics is incredibly important.

Through PEOPLE we help elect candidates who stand for what matters to AFSCME members:

  • Strong commitment to employees and labor
  • No contracting out Affordable health care
  • Retirement security
  • No cuts to vital public services
  • Pay increases / market studies

Politics is part of AFSCME's DNA. Federal election law and some state laws prohibit using dues for campaign contributions and other political activities. AFSCME PEOPLE enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.
