Saunders: AFSCME Adds 92,155 New Members in 2014

July 14, 2014

In January, AFSCME committed to helping 50,000 people join the union with a “50,000 Stronger” campaign. AFSCME President Lee Saunders announced on the first day of the organization's international convention that the union has nearly doubled that goal, with more than 90,000 workers choosing AFSCME so far in 2014. More than 20,000 of the new members are home care workers, who were recently the target of the troubling Supreme Court ruling in Harris v. Quinn.
