Nationwide, AFSCME wins results for healthcare providers

When it comes to speaking up for healthcare providers, AFSCME has the competition beat.

A new report by Bloomberg BNA finds that AFSCME has been more successful than any other union in securing better wages for workers in the healthcare sector.  “Of the four labor organizations that negotiated more than five contracts in 2012, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) gained the largest average yearly wage increases,” according to the independent report.

With a track record like this, it’s easy to see why so many of Vermont’s homecare providers see a bright future with AFSCME’s Vermont Homecare United.  AFSCME already represents 125,000 homecare providers nationwide and has negotiated important gains for homecare providers in states like California, Iowa, and Maryland.  And right here in Vermont, AFSCME has represented thousands of workers in local communities over the past sixty years.

The numbers speak for themselves.  AFSCME is the only union with a proven history of getting results for homecare providers and Vermonters.
