AFL-CIO President Tim Burga joined Council 8 for our state convention. He made a speech thanking AFSCME Council 8 for the work we do to support working families. Tim Burga highlighted the growing support of unionism among the broader public, particularly among workers under 30 years old.
President Burga reminded the audience that organized labor continues to be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to issues of public policy. “When we come together sisters and brothers, like we did with Senate Bill 5 and Issue 2, we’re the most powerful force in the state of Ohio and let’s never forget that”.
