Dear AFSCME DC 37 Retirees Associati


District Council 37 Retirees Chapter Administratorship

We're excited to share details about our Spring 2024 Retirees education program, brought to you through a Partnership with the DC 37 Education Department and the DC 37 Retirees Association. This program offers a variety of enriching experiences in education, recreation, and social engagement tailored for retirees like you. There's something to suit everyone's interests: health and fitness, history, computer/digital skills and language classes.

Every year on April 22 — Earth Day — communities across the globe celebrate our environment and commit to making it healthy for future generations.

This Earth Day, I’m thinking about the 50,000 AFSCME members who work in green jobs, protecting and caring for our planet. Whether they’re leading nature walks in our county or state parks, making public buildings more energy efficient and resilient to climate disasters, or making sure our waterways are clean, AFSCME members are at the heart of healthy communities.

On the 55th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., AFSCME releases the “I AM Story” podcast, which describes the working conditions faced by AFSCME sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1968 – the year of their historic strike – and connects that seminal event to today’s struggle for economic and racial justice. The podcast also spotlights the ties between the labor and civil rights movements.

DC 37 Retirees association leaders and members were on the move in March 2023, attending labor events and showing support for a City Council member who supported retirees on the healthcare issue.
Retirees attend LCLAA event
A delegation of DC 37 retirees was in the house at the annual NYC Celebration of the Labor Committee on Latin American Advancement (LCLAA).

The Florida Chapter of the DC 37 Retirees Association held in-person membership meetings at two separate locations on Feb. 13 and 15, 2023. Both in-person sessions were well attended.
Health Care, Health and Security Benefits and the Prescription Drug Plan were among the issues addressed.

AFSCME wholeheartedly supports the newly reintroduced Richard Trumka Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act), which would make it easier for workers in the private sector to form strong unions.
