AFSCME District Council 33

District Council 33 Annual Legislative Conference prepares delegates for AFSCME’s “I Am 2018” Campaign​

Please watch this important message from DC 33 President Pete Matthews.

Political & Legislative

The United States Supreme Court has decided to hear a case called Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, which would make the entire public sector “right-to-work” in one fell swoop.


Janus – which the nation’s highest court will take up in the October 2017-June 2018 term – is a blatantly political and well-funded plot to use the highest court in the land to further rig the economic rules against everyday working people.

U.S. Supreme Court to hear anti-union Janus case

On March 13, 14 and 15, 2018, I had the honor to call to order and start District Council 33’s annual Legislative Conference in Atlantic City, a well-attended meeting which covered topics ranging from health benefits to training for political action.

Today the United States Supreme Court handed down its decision on the Janus v. AFSCME case. In a narrow 5-4 decision, the Court fell in line with the big corporations and the organizations they fund in an effort to destroy the American Labor Movement. Make no mistake. This is just another attack in a campaign against unions that has been happening for decades.
