As we end the month of June we'd like to thank all of our members, delegates and Executive Board members for your continued support and motivation.
Our second quarter GMM held on 6/22 along with Philip Wahblo's retirement was a great turnout, and wish we could say the same with second GMM held on 6/29/23.
As a union, we must emphasize participation and feedback is needed. Change requires us all to do our share, and with negotiations soon approaching and our contract expiring on 8/31/23 we need our membership to come together and assist us in making a difference.
As mentioned in our GMM, numbers speak volumes. We know we have a lot to cover, and many changes are needed to obtain results, but without you we are only helping management divide us, and continue to get their way.
Let us help. Negotiation Surveys are needed to capture all we as employees deserve. Return yours soon to be counted in, and advise your coworkers to do the same.
We will continue to do whatever we can to make our workplace rise above its current challenges. Committee members are needed for the following committees: Health & Safety, Communications, Election and Testing. Delegates are also needed to ensure all departments have a go to person they can always rely on being informed and up to date with Fund and BFSA news.
Communications Committee is working on their first Newsletter and hope to have it distributed soon. Your union is busy working for the betterment of us all, and will continue to have our members interest and concerns discussed. Wanna talk, get advice or support we're here. Visit us on the 7th floor or send us an email. We can assure you, we will do all we can for you. Our membership, coworkers and family.
Upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.—Alexander The Great.
In solidarity always,
Your BFSA Executive Board
Delegates and Committee members
