WE ARE AFSCME NJ IN ATLANTIC COUNTY

NJ’s communities never rest. Atlantic County's neediest families need assistance. Their needs never diminish and they deserve the support of their community. That’s why people who work in public service never stop. This isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. The work matters because it means something to make Atlantic County's communities better.

AFSCME NJ believes that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect. As part of the AFL-CIO, AFSCME is one of the nation’s leading advocates for working women and men. AFSCME NJ's more than 30,000 members provide vital services in every community across New Jersey, and we believe everyone deserves a chance to fulfill the American dream.

AFSCME NJ is the 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. For people proudly committed to public service, we never quit.
