Union Sisters & Brothers,

AFSCME Council 31 is having  a Local Union Stewards training on November 12 & 13 2014, to be held at the AFSCME offices at 205 North Michigan Avenue, 21st floor, from 8:30a to 5p each day. This is a two day training & you must attend each day to become certified.

Even if you are unsure if you want to be a steward, it is an excellent opportunity to become adept in knowing your constitutional rights. You MUST be registered to attend, so please notify President Dunaway at if you are interested.

A strong steward structure helps build a strong Local!

Remember the Heinz commercial where various people are waiting patiently for the ketchup to come out of the bottle, while Carly Simon sings ‘Anticipation’? That’s how today’s negotiations went. But we didn’t achieve satisfaction like in the commercial.

After our last session on the 16th, hopes were high that we could finally put this contract to bed. But all hope was dashed quickly after management moved a date on a wage upgrade, and changed their prescription drug co-pays. While talks continued into the afternoon, no other moves were forthcoming from management’s side of the table.

Management made it clear once again that they want to bring our medical costs in line with various City & State agencies. We made it clear yet again that this isn’t going to happen until we see the money on the table! So today ended in a loggerhead. Management needs to be ‘motivated’. This is where we need you! Again.

Negotiations will resume next Wednesday. We need you to show support for the bargaining team by wearing green, wearing your wrist bands or stickers, making a phone call or several to Madame Prez on a certain date, and showing once and for all that you want a contract that has a pay raise and manageable health care costs!  Management needs to see that you GIVE A DAMN!

Quite frankly, we need to see so too. We need you to get behind us now more that ever. We don’t want management turning to another union at this late date to resolve wages and health care costs; as happened in the last contract. That’s why it’s so important to bring this to a resolution now!

If you don’t believe that your participation is important, then we can accept the current deal on the table for wages & health care and be done with bargaining  for another two or three years. Or, we fight together to get better wages and a fair health care package. The choice is yours…

By the way…. Council 31 acknowledged the strong support coming from some of our members, manning the phone banks and canvassing areas for the Quinn campaign! Keep up the good work! Volunteers are still needed! Call Claudia at (773) 674-2560 to sign up!

As the polls open around the County & State for early voting, we encourage you to exercise your right to vote and cast a ballot in the November 4th election.

If you value the right to have collective bargaining to negotiate wages and health care premiums, instead of being told what they are going to be, you must cast your vote for Pat Quinn.

AFSCME Council 31 has endorsed Governor Quinn. The major newspapers across the state haven’t. They blame the pension mess on him, and believe that his opponent will fix it. They also blame AFSCME for demanding that the State live up to their contractual obligations, and those of the Illinois Constitution. His opponent will change the pension system to a 401k investment system, fire government employees and privatize as many positions as possible. This is how he will ‘fix’ the pension mess.

Don’t think it could happen here? Don’t think it will happen? That’s what the Union Sisters & Brothers in Wisconsin thought too! Watch the videos in the 9/13 post below again. The State Legislature and Courts have teamed together to strip and limit Union Rights across the State of Wisconsin. Mr. Quinn’s opponent has called Scott Walker his ROLE MODEL! What does that tell you?

Contract negotiations resume tomorrow. It is also AFSCME Solidarity Day! So wear your green t-shirts & wrist bands to show solidarity with the bargaining team!

Will this be the last contract? Don’t think it’s possible here? Watch the videos. Then gather your family, friends and neighbors and go to the polls starting today through November 2nd, or on Tuesday November 4th and cast your vote for Pat Quinn. If you don’t, November 5th will be the start of an entirely new agenda and we are Public Enemy Number One on his list!

And you thought your vote didn’t count!

Volunteers are still needed to work the call centers to get out the vote for Quinn! You can choose from two locations:

205 North Michigan Avenue, 21st Floor, Chicago


935 175th Street, 3rd Floor, Homewood

Call Claudia at (773) 674-2560  to sign up!

Today is the last day to file a bid for transfer of assignment. Management will freeze the bid list on Monday, and who knows when/if any movement will occur over the next few weeks. So if you want to place a bid for a new assignment, or if you need to update a transfer request because it is over one year old, today is the last day to do so before the list is frozen.

The list will reopen again at a later time.

Volunteers are still needed to make phone calls to get out the vote on November 4th for Pat Quinn. Calls are made on Monday – Thursday nights from various locations. Volunteers are also needed to pass out flyers/canvass neighborhoods on Saturdays too. Call Council 31 at (312) 641-6060 to sign up!

Our future as a Union depends on a Quinn Win! We don’t want to become a Wisconsin ‘annex’!

All AFSCME Members are encouraged to attend the County Board Meeting on Wednesday, October 8th at 9:30am. If you go, WEAR YOUR AFSCME GREEN T-SHIRT!

President Preckwinkle just ‘loves’ to see the gallery in GREEN! You MUST use your own time to attend this meeting (Personal, Float or Vacation) as no sick time will be approved.

Contract negotiations are scheduled to resume on October 16th & 21st. Maybe the County Board will get the message if they see a ‘Sea of Green’ behind them!

Any County Employee wanting to make any changes to their health care, dental care, insurance or flexible spending account is encouraged to make changes before October 31.

Here are videos of what a Rauner governorship would look like:

Taking a Strike

Fire Union Workers

Eliminate Pensions

Public Employees = Financial Tumor

Bad for Working People

Don’t let Illinois follow Wisconsin!

You are needed to save Collective Bargaining in Illinois! Tell your family & friends! Show them these videos! Stop this man from trying to buy the governor’s mansion in November!

Should the State Collective Bargaining Rights fall, how much longer before the 5th floor occupants at 118 North Clark try and eliminate Collective Bargaining Rights from City & County Workers too? We can’t afford to take that chance!

Visit to volunteer to get the message out into YOUR COMMUNITY! Or use the link on the right for Council 31 website.
