The Local 1237 Christmas Meeting is back!!!!!! The Local 1237 Executive Board would like to announce that the Annual Christmas Meeting is back. The meeting will be held on December 6, 2022, at the union hall at 6:00 pm. Only members will be allowed to participate as this is still a union meeting. I hope to see you there. Every year at this time the labor unions prepare for Operation Christmas Basket. Operation Christmas Basket is for union members who have had a hard year and work has been slow. They provide food and toys for families in need during the holiday’s and make it a little easier for are members in need. If you or a brother or sister you know who may need some help, please let me know. The New Year is quickly coming upon us, and I would like to start talking about negotiations as soon as January. I need your input so we can negotiate what you want in a contract. Please be a part of the process and help the negotiating team with your input. I will be sending out surveys in January. If you are reading this, I would like to thank you for taking the time and would lie to know what you like about the content and what is important to you.
