Why Join Local 3173?

We are a diverse workforce of skills, responsibility, and years of service spanning the state of Minnesota. We don’t have a singular reason to join, we have many.

We are a part of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), a union that honors solidarity without conformity, drawing each member’s story into a force of experience and commitment that can’t be ignored. That’s how we win better lives for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

We, the workers, make MNHS work! Our Local is built by the very people it serves and will always advocate for us.

We believe our contract gives us a strong foundation with processes and language to continue to build from. Please join our Local 3173 and support your fellow bargaining unit colleagues!
