In Memoriam

AFSCME Council 5 members are bravely serving our state and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and doing everything possible to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Through the course of this pandemic, we have had thousands of AFSCME members infected by this disease, hospitalized, and have lost their lives due to COVID-19 health complications. We mourn the loss of these proud AFSCME members and will never forget their incredible legacy to improve our workplaces and “Make Minnesota Happen."
