Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time for families, a time to love, to give, and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in life — each other.  The same is true of our Union family.

It’s also a time to take stock of the past year. 2017 has been a year unlike any other. But we’ve made gains and built a stronger AFSCME Ohio Council 8 that’s ready to brave the coming tests.  And we have done it all as a family, as a Union.

With many forces working against us, we have continued to organize new members, represent you on the job and bargain strong contracts.  We should also be very proud of our success making our union AFSCME Strong.

Next year AFSCME will face a hostile U. S. Supreme Court set to make right-to-work the law of the land for public employees.  And to the Nation Labor Relations Board will continue tear down private sector worker rights.

With the strength of our members, activists, retirees, and our local union leadership, our Union will continue to take on the challenges facing Ohio’s working families.

We’ve always stuck together and looked out for each other and I am confident we will continue to do so.  We all have much to be thankful for.

First Vice President Harold Mitchell and the Ohio Council 8 Executive Board join me in thanking you for the work you do.

In Solidarity,

John A. Lyall
President AFSCME Ohio Council 8
