AFSCME Local 60 - Municipal & School District Employees of Dane County

Our Union

Welcome to the official website of AFSCME Local 60. We are municipal and school district employees working in Dane county.  

You are apart of a diverse, powerful organization fueled by its members.

Local 60 is just that – Local. We are working with you here on the ground in Dane county. 

A strong union is better able to protect workers’ rights, fight for workplace improvements, and quality of life on the job.

Thanks to all our members who work while the kids enjoy their time off!

Former long time member Kathleen Rideout’s father has been in Meriter since early April with numerous health issues that require Kathleen and her mom to be there most of the day and many overnights.

As a gesture of good and welfare Local 60 would like to provide a weekly meal for Kathleen’s family. This could be something that can be simply heated up in a microwave at the hospital. (Examples: a pan of lasagna or casserole, etc.)

Food Allergies: seafood.

Meals can be delivered to Walt Jackson at the CCB, Police GR-21 anytime on Tuesdays from 8:00am-4:30pm.

Sign up to make a meal:
Call Walt 261-9264 or email him
