AFSCME Council 32
8033 Excelsior Dr.
Wisconsin is the birthplace of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), which was founded in 1932. Our union has grown to represent more than 1.6 million members across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
AFSCME members are employed by the state, counties and municipalities as well as by private sector and nonprofit organizations. We represent thousands of retirees. Our membership includes child welfare workers, street and highway workers, nursing home caregivers, school support staff, nurses and other health care providers, corrections officers, public inspectors, planners, foresters, conservation wardens, auditors, administrative support staff, social workers, technicians, heavy equipment operators, garbage collectors, parks employees, probation and parole agents, mechanics, water and sewerage district employees, and countless more. We represent a diverse group of people who work in every area of public service across Wisconsin.
In 2015, AFSCME members voted to create a new, unified structure to foster growth and activism in Wisconsin. On June 1, Council 32 officially became the single voice for AFSCME members in Wisconsin. The new Council combines the membership and resources of Wisconsin’s historic Council 24, Council 40 and Council 48.
Staff employed by AFSCME International also serves members in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Area office and its staff provide assistance and resources for retirees as well as all affiliates in the state.
