Did you know that participation with your local not only helps our fellow brothers and sisters it makes us stronger in solidarity when it comes time to effect change in our workplace and ultimately in our lives? Yes it does and time and again we see large and small locals from across the country showing their employers how they can not arbitrarily bully or intimidate our members without recourse. These attendees to union meetings with their great ideas and insight, volunteer stewards, committee members and elected leaders deserve our thanks and respect for stepping up to the plate with representing you every day. With that, we'll regularly offer tokens of appreciation to those who get involved. Ultimately its the membership that drives this union and fosters unity and solidarity. So don't forget to thank those individuals next time you see them!
