DC 47 PEOPLE Interviews With Candidates

On Saturday, March 16, DC 47’s PEOPLE Committee will have City Council At-Large candidates present and answer questions beginning at 9:30 a.m. at 1600 Walnut Street on the 3rd floor. All members are welcome to attend. We spoke to City Commissioner candidates earlier this week.


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.

Health & Safety

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.


The Newsletter section includes the District Council 47 newsletter, as well as newsletters from the Locals and Health & Welfare.
