The AFSCME Local 88 party will be the last union hosted event of 2021.  When we gather as union members and families we build relationships and solidarity. The planning committee for this event has worked hard to create an evening of fun and appreciation.  

When asked to share one work-related appreciation here are a few union members responses 

  • My work group has taken the chaos and anger of the last year and channeled it into making positive change
  • I’m grateful that I’m a part of a team that has open communication at all levels where leadership leads by example
  • My team has been super supportive with helping me learn new tasks. 
  • My team is amazing. They worked so hard thru the pandemic assisting consumers in a closing NF to find alternative placement
