District 1199C’s Nominations for AFSCME Convention Delegates 2020

The 44th International Convention will be unlike any in AFSCME’s history. The coronavirus pandemic makes it unsafe and impossible for us to convene in person in Los Angeles as planned. So, we will have a virtual convention, allowing us to come together online, on August 13 and 14, to write our union’s next chapter, to build on the successes of the last few years and march boldly into the future.

Digital Advocacy Toolkit: Paid Sick Leave for Frontline Workers

The Philadelphia City Council has the opportunity to pass a bill that would give all workers the ability to have paid leave if they test positive for COVID-19 or were in contact with someone who tested positive and must self-isolate. This is more important than ever.

The bill gets voted in committee on Monday, June 22nd. It will then get a final vote the first week of July. ​You should use this toolkit everyday until the first week of July to make the biggest impact.

Your voice can make all the difference!

1199c has developed this social media toolkit that you can use to reach out to your city council member. You can use the graphics to tell your story as well as post on your councilmember’s page.
