Headline: AFSCME Applauds Decision to Keep the Caro Center Hospital in Operation, Expresses Concern Over Decrease in Total Beds

Lansing, MI- AFSCME Council 25 issued the following statement today from President Lawrence A. Roehrig in response to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement that the State of Michigan will keep the Caro Center Hospital in operation.

“AFSCME Council 25 is thrilled with the decision to keep the Caro Center hospital in operation. We are so proud of our members at the Caro Center and across the State who mobilized their communities to build a strong coalition in support of the Caro Center project and the patients they care for. They showed what it means to be AFSCME STRONG by standing up for what was right and by staying committed to one another in the face of extraordinary adversity.

While we are thrilled the hospital will remain operational, we remain concerned by the proposed decrease in beds at the facility. When you elect kind-hearted and compassionate leaders, you don’t always get everything you want, but you know they are looking out for working people. We thank the Governor for taking added time and effort to include AFSCME members in the process which has been totally lacking in previous administrations.

We will NEVER QUIT in this continued fight for Caro patients and the hardworking staff who provide the highest quality patient care. We will fight for fairness for everyone in the Caro Center community and ensure that this is a TRUE partnership between the State and workers to improve the quality of mental health care in Michigan. This is a partnership not to be taken lightly, and AFSCME members will continue our vigilance in the legislative and budgetary process and will be on the front lines of this fight if necessary.”

Matt Campbell, President of AFSCME Local 831 at the Caro Center, shared the same sentiment. “I want to thank the members of AFSCME Local 831 for standing together. We would not have achieved this positiv

Headline: 🚨ENDORSEMENT ALERT🚨

Today the AFSCME Council 25 Executive Board and Officers ratified the recommendations of the Area PEOPLE Committees and issued the following endorsements of candidates at the federal, state, and local levels.

“The Republican leadership in Lansing and D.C. has fought tooth and nail to make life harder for every day working people and rig the rules in favor of big businesses and CEOs” said Council 25 President Lawrence A. Roehrig. “These candidates have laid out bold visions where anyone that works hard for a living isn’t forced to choose between groceries or the electric bill, where children from every zip code have access to affordable higher education and vocational training, and where our seniors don’t have to worry about constant attacks on their pensions and healthcare and can retire with dignity.”

Lorna Davison, a Wayne County employee and the elected statewide PEOPLE Chairperson shared Roehrig’s excitement. “These candidates came before committees of AFSCME members across the state as part of a true democratic process. They got to know our members and showed that they understand the struggles that they face on the job and in their communities every day. We’re ready to help get these candidates to Lansing and Washington D.C. so they can restore the American Dream.”

Headline: Senate Republicans introduced n a last minute bill in the Lame Duck session that would require workers to repeatedly vote to stay in their union. This so-called “recertification” legislation serves only one purpose: to keep unions distracted with costly recertification elections, undermining the ability of the union to represent our members under the terms negotiated under our collective bargaining process.

Headline: This morning, Senate Republicans took testimony on a last minute bill in the Lame Duck session that would require workers to repeatedly vote to stay in their union. This so-called “recertification” legislation serves only one purpose: to keep unions distracted with costly recertification elections, undermining the ability of the union to represent our members under the terms negotiated under our collective bargaining process.

We must stop their efforts to fast track this legislation.

Not only is this legislation harmful to our freedoms as union members, but it’s entirely unnecessary. As union members, we already have regular opportunities to vote on who represents us as well as the rights contained in our contracts. And, we already have the ability to call for a recertification election if we choose to.

Forcing union members to vote to be able to stay in their union every two years isn’t about protecting us, it’s about taking away our freedoms and the power in our numbers.

They know this won’t be popular. That’s why they have included an appropriation in the bill, to deny us our right to challenge it at the ballot box, and that’s just plain wrong.

Write your Senator RIGHT NOW and tell them “hands off my union”, and to oppose this harmful legislation.
