  • Don't take your benefits for granted!

    The pay and benefits associated with your job did not appear by magic. Union members worked long and hard to put those benefits into place. You must know that in the "new economy" employers often take back benefits that employees worked hard to earn. The good news is that with a strong, united NAPE/AFSCME, not a single contract benefit can be eliminated or reduced unilaterally by the state. By standing up with NAPE/AFSCME members you can influence our union priorities and strengthen our union fight to preserve key benefits.
