Local 1549 is excited to offer all members two different scholarship programs: one for members, and one for the children & grandchildren of members.

DC 37 Family,

I’m pleased to announce the citywide economic agreement was approved by 97.7% of the 45,936 members who cast ballots during the ratification process.

Thank you for your confidence in this union. Because of your support, we secured an economic agreement that provides long-overdue raises, a significant bonus, flexible work, childcare support, premium-free healthcare and increased workplace safety. Now that you have ratified the agreement, we’re working to immediately implement your much-needed raises.

AFSCME President Lee Saunders, District Council 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido and others honored an AFSCME legend last week – former DC 37 Executive Director and International Executive Board member Lillian Roberts.
