Our Official AFA Pin is Now White
October 30, 2019
MEC Negotiations Committee
At the Fall 2019 Regular Meeting, the United Master Executive Council acted to restore our traditional white AFA pin as our official AFA pin. As negotiations for our next contract enter the preparatory stages, our Union leadership determined this shift was necessary in order to restore the importance of our red AFA pin during any period of bargaining. It is vitally important that we all understand wearing our AFA pin is an outward system of our solidarity. While all the ways we show strength and unity are important, wearing our AFA pin demonstrates to management in the simplest way possible that we are all in; that we stand together behind Union leadership and that “My Union speaks for me.”
Look for white AFA pins at your Local Council Office and make it part of your uniform each time you wear it.
