CUB Retirees Charter Celebration

The City Union of Baltimore, Local #800 (CUB) chartered their retiree chapter, CUB-R, and held an immaculate reception to commemorate the occasion. CUB board members as well as current active members were in attendance. The event was held in the large conference room of the Baltimore Teachers Union. Retirees, AFT-Maryland staff, and AFT National Staff worked diligently to get chapter chartered and operating.

In Sympathy with DPW

We at the City Union of Baltimore are deeply saddened to hear of the violent death of a city employee. Our heart & prayers go out to the victim's family and all members of AFSCME Local 44. We in labor are all brothers and sisters and when tragedy strikes one of us, it strikes all of us.

Lobby Night in Annapolis 2016

Over a hundred members of the unions that make up AFT-Maryland took to Annapolis to engage their elected representatives. Lobby Night as it is called gave members and activists an opportunity to extend their voices directly to the people that they elected. Nearly all of the locals that make up AFT-Maryland were represented and union members did not hesitate to ask Delegates and State Senators tough questions.

  • safe work and learning environments for all state workers, educational professionals, and students,
  • due process rights for Maryland School for the Deaf teachers,
  • eliminating bullying from management in the workplace,
  • and much more!
