Issue # 61: October 5, 2023
Update from the President
Out of the Office – Family Emergency
We had a much bigger action for the Board last week as it was needed for the layoffs, and that shifted us from actions for the 10/4 meeting. No GMMs today due to that and Bargaining will have better updates after Friday’s meeting.
Look for an updated schedule that adjusts for more communication immediately following Bargaining Meetings.
If you can, attend Friday’s session in person, if not via Zoom, but try to stick around after to have some conversation on what took place during the session.
Contact email@example.com to get involved in the membership chat during the meeting!

We are still miles away from management on fiscal compensation, so we are working through the areas we can accomplish something … closing out some open articles. Hopefully we hear some more fiscal options from management Friday. Tune in and stay after to talk to the team about what is presented.
