August 2015 Update
The call for contract proposals has been posted. We have been asked to get our proposals to the National office no later than September 30th and we’ve scheduled a General Membership meeting for September 26th to receive your input. In addition, the Local Executive Board will be meeting earlier that week to address these issues.
Through this process every Member has the opportunity to submit their desired changes for our workplace. It isn’t necessary to formulate specific language or identify individual provisions of the National Agreement that need to be changes; although, should you choose to do so that would be fine. The important part is to provide your input. Ideas are fine and you don’t even need to use the form. Just email your ideas directly to me at email@example.com and we’ll put the pieces together.
Hope to see you at the meeting or hear from you soon.
