Sixteen proposals for changes to the contract between AFSCME and the State of Minnesota were submitted by Local 920 members. There is no guarantee that these proposals will make it to the table for negotiations, but nothing changes unless we make the effort to change it.

Since it is in our best interest to keep these proposals private until negotiations with the State begin, please contact Treasurer Anna Borgstrom at presidentlocal920@gmail.com to request copies of the proposals if you are interested in reading them.

Click on the above link for a list of current Local 920 stewards.
