Call for Union History Stories

We are asking for folks to send in their personal or familial stories about what it means to be a union member now or come from a union family. These are intended to reflect on the legacy of unionism in this country as well as draw out the importance of being a union member now. Including any photos is appreciated as well (these can be old photos of family members, photos of yourself, etc). Our intention is to bring these personal stories into our Local 3800 newsletter as well as showcase at the Ice Cream Socials in August. Tell us what being a member means to you so we can bring your story to everyone!



BECAUSE OF UNION WORK BOTH PAST AND PRESENT, WE HAVE AND MAINTAIN: THE 8 HOUR WORKDAY, THE WEEKEND, HOLIDAYS AND MORE! 

JOIN US IN CELEBRATING OUR UNION AND YOUR HARD WORK AT OUR ANNUAL ICE CREAM SOCIAL. 

INVITE YOUR COWORKERS AND COME WITH STORIES TO SHARE ABOUT WHAT BEING A UNION MEMBER MEANS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. 


Ice cream and sorbet from Izzy's ice cream will be served at each location. Members, come to spin the wheel, answer labor union trivia to win a prize and to join a raffle!

Janus v. AFSCME What's at Stake?
