President’s Message

Welcome to the City of Renton AFSCME Local 2170 website.

Local 2170 is comprised of a diverse and inclusive work force that prides itself on ensuring equality,
safety, and fairness for its workers. The past few years have been challenging for all of us, but our
members should be proud of all the work we have accomplished together to keep essential services
available to the City of Renton community.

Our union is part of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) which
is an international union that represents 3,400 local unions and 58 councils. Our Local 2170 is part of
Council 2, which is under AFSCME and represents Washington state’s county and city employees.

The most important part of Local 2170 is our members. The members are the union. All decisions made
in our union come from our members and the leaders voted into office. It is important for all of us in
Local 2170 to stand together and be active in supporting one another to ensure that our working rights
are maintained. It was the union who achieved a minimum wage, overtime pay, workplace safety
standards, maternity and paternity leave, vacation pay, protection from discrimination and harassment,
and more for all workers, and our Local 2170 union is what preserves these rights at the City of Renton.
We are all working hard to ensure a better future for all AFSCME members, families, and our

As your Local 2170 Interim President, I promise to fight for our members rights and will be there to
support them in any way I can. Our union leadership is all hardworking folks who take pride in ensuring
that the membership is treated fairly and equitably. I strongly urge all our members to reach out to their
shop stewards with any questions that they may have. You can also always contact myself or anyone on
the leadership team, and we would be happy to address any questions/comments/ concerns that you
may have.

I encourage you to regularly check the Local 2170 website for updates and information regarding our
union. If you have any interest in getting more involved with your union please reach out. Together, we
can work together to build a better workplace and a stronger community for all.

Union Strong!
