It has been a busy couple of months. With contract ratifications, elections and wage allocations. I wanted to take this opportunity to and thank all of the members that came out to help with these processes. We cannot do this alone and I just wanted to take a moment to recognize all who have helped through these busy months. At our last meeting I mentioned that we need the membership to get more involved with Union activities. This is our Union and 1 person cannot do it all. That is why we are a Union, together we can accomplish more.
Our new V.A.C. Coordinator, Nick Eason, is working on some events for the Sacramento area. There is V.A.C event planned for July 23, 2022 from 10am to 2pm at the Union Hall. At this event we will be collecting Back packs and school supplies for the Sacramento Children’s Home. We will be sorting out supplies and filling backpacks that day to be ready to deliver to the Sacramento Children’s Home. You don’t have to bring a backpack but any donations will help. To get credit for this event you will sort and fill the backpacks that are donated. This is a great event for a good cause. Come out and get involved! See you there!
