NAPE/AFSCME Members Vote – Election Day is November 8

Union members across Nebraska understand the importance of voting on Election Day – November 8, 2022! Electing pro-worker candidates at all levels of government, especially in the Nebraska Legislature, is critical to protecting our rights to negotiate contracts collectively and have a voice on the job!

The NAPE/AFSCME Government Affairs Committee (GAC) is a bi-partisan group of union members who monitors pending legislation and political issues that are important to our members. The NAPE/AFSCME GAC invited all candidates for congress, governor, and legislature to interview with the committee to share their positions on issues that affect state employees.

You can read a summary of the candidates interviews by clicking on the following links:

After the interviews, the GAC made recommendations to the NAPE/AFSCME Board of Directors for our union to endorse certain candidates who the committee felt best supported issues that affect state employees on the job. See a list of NAPE/AFSCME Local 61’s endorsements here.

Be sure to cast your vote on November 8. It’s important this election season to be aware of which candidates are pro-union and pro-labor. Having legislative support behind NAPE/AFSCME Local 61 is incredibly valuable as we continue to work to negotiate our strongest contract ever.
