We are beginning to have Member Orientation Classes in person. Please watch for your letter to come in the mail for the time and date of attendance. We need you to RSVP to have an accurate count as we will be providing food and drinks for everyone there. ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY.

 We are starting with the members who have been in the union the longest that have not taken the class, and will move up to the most recent.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you at the Orientation Class.
