Mike Buesing Local Union Development Award: St. Stephen's Human Services

The Mike Buesing Local Union Development Award is presented each year to an individual member, local union or group of members or locals who have contributed significantly to internal mobilization and local union development.

We're thrilled to have presented this year's award to Local 999 -St. Stephen's Human Services. Local 999 recently ratified their first tentative agreement, all while often negotiating virtually due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. 

Because of Local 999's perseverance, passion, and heart their hard work and over 40 weeks of negotiating paid off! In the face of great obstacles, AFSCME Local 999 exemplifies the very meaning of the Mike Beusing Local Union Development award. Congratulations!
