What benefits do we get from AFSCME?

CSEA’s affiliation with AFSCME gives us access to the international union’s numerous resources in such fields as research, negotiations, education and training, communications and health and safety. With AFSCME, CSEA has a lobbying voice in Washington and the political clout of being part of a 1.3 million member union.Our affiliation with AFSCME also gives us protection under the AFL-CIO constitution from raids on our membership by other AFL-CIO affiliates. This allows CSEA to devote more time and resources to our members instead of on fending off challenges by other unions for the right to represent our members.
