My name is David Johnson. I have helped my local 2019 brothers and sisters as a shop steward for the past five years. Representing Local 2019 as an AFSCME International Delegate would give me the chance to meet our Union Leaders, talk with other activists about issues and utilize the convention workshops to become a stronger asset for Local 2019. I appreciate the nomination and thank you for your vote.

Thank you for nominating me for International Convention Delegate.
AFSCME International, our parent organization, has become too entrenched in politics and lost touch with our mission to improve the working conditions of our middle class members.
I look forward to challenging AFSCME International’s leadership to do more…
• More tools (training and research) to help Locals succeed at the negotiating table
• More involvement by Local leadership in the International’s decision making process
• More transparency in the way the International conducts business
I would be honored to have your vote and represent Local 2019.
In accordance with our Constitution, we will be requesting nominations for the following offices at our regular General Membership Meeting on Tuesday, May 17, 2016:
• 2 – 2017 Contract Negotiation Team Members
• 1 – Trustee
