October 1st Meeting:
We will be holding elections for Union office, in addition to our annual scholarship drawings, at the October 1st meeting. You will receive a mailing this summer with more information about the election and applications for the scholarship drawing.
The Executive Board also wanted to inform members about the cancellation of Local 8D's life insurance policy with MetLife. After reviewing the high cost of the policy and the infrequency of its use (thankfully), we decided it was best to instead establish a fund internally through the union to serve the same purpose as the life insurance policy at less cost. We will have a discussion about the fund at the membership meeting as well.
This meeting will also serve as a reminder to please make sure your Executive Board member has your most up-to-date email and home addresses. We hope to start using email more soon so that we can easily and effectively communicate with members.
We look forward to seeing you there!
