September 2018

I hope that all of our Members have had a safe and enjoyable Summer.  On the Local front, the Local held our annual Golf Outing in August at Centennial Acres Golf Course in Sunfield. The event was another huge success with the help of our sponsors and volunteers. We look forward to next year making it even more fun and enjoyable for our members and their families. Both the Local and Unit Standing Committee Chairs attended recent conferences. I would like to thank all of you who volunteer for these committees. From the Veterans Committee to the Civil and Humans Rights Committee to the Union Label Committee, all are a vital part of our Local and our Union. If any member would like more information on any of our Standing Committees please contact the Local or your Chairperson for more information.  As we see the season change please remember what time of year we are heading into. Election season is upon us. With the current political environment in our state it is even more important that the people in our state and our members exercise their right to VOTE. To our members that say that your vote does not count I say this. If you sit home and do not vote then those who attack our very way of life win! Those who seek to destroy the Middle Class way of life and the very Union that we all belong to cannot be allowed to take office. We cannot protect our way of life and those that we care about if we sit on our hands and do nothing. As the elections for our State draw near it has never been more important than to stand up and let your voice be heard. VOTE!!. I ask one last thing of our Membership. Take those phones and computers that we all have and look up the word SOLIDARITY. Then see how you can apply that to your life. To me it means looking out for my Brothers and Sisters. Having one voice. Our Union was founded on this principal and getting back to those principals has to be priority.

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics, Doesn’t mean that politics won’t take an interest in you” -Pericles-
