AFT-Maryland Stepping Up for Members

Share This

Union support is important for every worker on any job. During this global pandemic, that support becomes even more important. Locals from across the state federation, with support and guidance from AFT-Maryland, are working hard to meet the needs of members. While unions are still responding to grievances, organizing new members, negotiating contracts, conducting labor-management meetings, and everything else that our organizations typically do, we have also tried to fill the gaps on what members need to know during this unique and uncertain time. 

AFT-Maryland has information on our website to get clarity on how Marylanders are to cast their ballots in Maryland’s Primary election this June.

Additionally, the state federation has created a central location for questions about federal stimulus money and how it may affect individuals as well as state and local governments.

Where the unions are happiest to lead may be in providing much needed protective personal equipment (PPE) to members. Local leaders found ways to get members who work in direct contact with the public, vital resources they need. While the work isn’t finished and the PPE aren’t exhaustive, the municipal unions of AFT-Maryland working hand-in-hand with the state federation and the Metro Baltimore AFL-CIO were able to provide everything from masks, rubber gloves, and wipes to some of our members. Members were grateful to receive the goods and happy that in their time of need their union was stepping up to fill in the gaps.
