AFSCME holds 45th International Convention

Beginning July 11 in Philadelphia, AFSCME members will convene in person for AFSCME's 45th International Convention. It will be the first in-person convention in four years. The theme is aptly “All Together.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has largely kept us apart physically, but it has not broken our will,” said AFSCME President Lee Saunders. “It has not sapped our power. It has not undermined our solidarity. And it most definitely has not stopped AFSCME members from doing the essential work that sustains our communities. Public services—and the dedicated, fearless people who provide them—are what have gotten the nation through this debilitating, once-in-a-century crisis.”

With strict safety protocols in place, hundreds of delegates from councils and local unions across the country will gather together in Philadelphia and renew AFSCME’s collective commitment to building worker power and growing our union.

“All Together at last, we will honor the sacrifice AFSCME members have made, celebrating extraordinary stories of public service workers who never quit,” Saunders said.
