We have constructed a survey to help us decide, as a group, how we would like to tackle climate change problems. This is where we need your help. We would like to know what you, DC47 members, think about climate change and IF you agree that it IS a concern, what actions you would like to take.
Jonathon Epps, a 15-year employee with the Department of Public Works expressed his pride for the work he does to keep the city safe and clean.
“The work I do keeps our community safe, prevents disease and limits the rodent population,” he said. “By coming to work every day, I know I am making a difference in my city. I call on City Council and the mayor to keep our public water public – we do a good job and we are committed to our neighborhoods and our city.”
Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future.
There is nothing more important than staying safe on the job. Our lives depend on it. That is why, as AFSCME members, we have access to some of the best workplace health and safety resources available.
