AFSCME Local 199

Miami-Dade County workers make AFSCME Local 199 strong

Although our job duties vary greatly, we’re all public servants. We keep our neighborhoods safe and functional. Nationally, AFSCME's members provide the vital services that make America happen. With members in hundreds of different occupations — from nurses to corrections officers, child care providers to sanitation workers — AFSCME advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and prosperity and opportunity for all working families.

The hardworking men and women who keep Duval County Public Schools clean do so while fighting poverty wages of $12/hour. 

AFSCME fought to pass the American Rescue Plan and it is already making a difference in the pandemic recovery effort. The child tax credit provides families with the largest tax credit in history. It not only increases the tax credit for families to $3,000 per child between 6-17 years old at the end of 2021 and $3,600 per child under 6 years old, it also allows half to be paid to families in advance through a monthly check or direct deposit.
