Council 65 - Representing Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota

AFSCME Council 65 believes that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect. AFSCME is one of the leading advocates for working women and men in Minnesota.

Despite high levels of stress on the job, many state and local workers say they highly value serving the public and their communities and feel generally satisfied with their jobs.

AFSCME members who work in health care and social services jobs face workplace violence daily. Now they are closer to having it.

It's AFSCME's mission to give you every advantage to get ahead. That's why we've partnered with Eastern Gateway Community College.  Through the AFSCME Free College benefit, you and your family members can earn an associate degree, completely online – for FREE.
