Dear Union Siblings,
Last week, Rawel Campbell, Andrew Smith, and Nalani Williams represented our union family DC37 Local 1503 at the AFSCME 45 International Convention that took place in Philadelphia. The convention took place from July 11th to July 15th, 2022. During this time we voted on 42 resolutions,3 amendments, and a handful of appeals. In addition we attended workshops to strengthen our leadership muscle and aid in being a better union sibling.
On Wednesday we rallied on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art with fellow AFSCME members, PMA Union Local 397 who have been denied a fair contract for going on two years. The Philadelphia Museum of Art Union, which organized with AFSCME as PMA Union Local 397 in August 2020, has been stonewalled by museum management, which has refused to compromise on measures that would provide staff with greater job security, pay and safety from harassment.

On a lighter note, when all was done we were able to visit a few historical sites: Paul Robeson House and Museum and Eastern State Penitentiary before heading home.
