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 our local Austinites for Equity PAC we help elect candidates who stand for what matters to AFSCME members:

  • We strongly oppose any form of strong mayor to the city charter. 
  • 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 AUSTINITES FOR EQUITY PAC enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.

Get Involved

Through our AUSTINITES FOR EQUITY PAC thousands of AFSCME members help get out the vote for candidates who support working families and public services. We make phone calls, knock on doors, and do whatever it takes to turn out more voters. Be a part of history and join us.
