PEOPLE is a voluntary CSEA and AFSCME program where participating members contribute funds
which are then used to advance CSEA’s agenda at the local, state and federal levels. This includes education programs, lobbying efforts, and supporting candidates running for office.

It is important to note that union dues cannot be used in any federal campaign. Therefore, all federal campaigns are funded by voluntary contributions through the PEOPLE program.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:   PEOPLE Rewards Points Expiring March 1, 2024

As you may know, the AFSCME PEOPLE Rewards website has been down for some time.  During the pandemic, AFSCME lost many of their USA/union-made vendors and the website’s security certificate was out of date, which caused the issues.

Going forward, AFSCME is transitioning away from rewards points. PEOPLE members will have until March 1, 2024, to redeem your current points, with new merchandise available. Here is the login information for accessing your account to redeem your points:

Logging in:

  • Click on this link to access the store:
  • Click “sign in” on the top right of the page
  • Sign in with your username and password. If this is your first login, use the email address and password AFSCME2023.

Once you are logged in, you should see “My Account” with your points credit where the sign in button was located.

Setting your password:

  • Hover over “My Account” and click on “Account” in the drop-down menu.
  • Click on “Edit Profile”
  • You will then be able to change your general information, billing information, and shipping information, as well as your password. Scroll down and hit “save” for any changes made.
    Click on the “AFSCME PEOPLE” logo to be redirected to the home page to start shopping.

Please be advised that all points will expire on March 1, 2024.  If you are not sure what email you have on file with us, please email or call 202 429-1180.

Thank you for your participation in the PEOPLE program. With your support, we would not be able to elect leaders who support public employees and the work we do.


“Whether we are public or private sector workers or retirees, a strong political presence is vital to our existence as a union. For as little as 27 cents a day, you can help to protect and strengthen collective bargaining rights, safety in the workplace, health care, retirement benefits, and much more.”
