Congratulations Muskogee City Employees!
AFSCME members in Muskogee, Okla., and their uniformed sisters and brothers in the fire and police departments are cheering the return of collective bargaining rights to the city’s non-uniform employees. The city council’s ordinance restoring the rights takes effect July 15. On that day, workers who make up AFSCME Local 2465 will file a petition to qualify for a union recognition election – recognition that was stripped away after an anti-worker state law repealed their rights last spring. Local 2465 members are the men and women who keep Muskogee’s streets, parks and water safe and clean every day. Winning back their bargaining rights came after members got involved in the spring city council elections, securing the victory of three pro-worker candidates.
