WHO WE ARE


AFSCME Local 171 represents blue collar, technical and security employees at UW-Madison, UW-System, UW-Extension, UW-Baraboo/Sauk County and UW-Rock County. We are individuals who care about their co-workers and their communities. People standing together to say, “All people deserve to make a living wage, have affordable health care, and a secure retirement.”

Our working conditions are student’s learning and living conditions. We provide the assets and environment to facilitate the discovery of new treatments for cancer, understand the formation of stars, or how society can overcome inequality. We do work that often goes unnoticed: cooking the meals, washing the windows, taking out the trash, shoveling the snow. 

Our work is vital to keeping this University a thriving institution. Our efforts are for the betterment of everyone. We negotiate better working conditions. We represent those who feel unjustly treated. 

We, Local 171, are one of many locals in Council 32 which unite all AFSCME locals in the state, representing state, UW, county, and municipal employees.
