AFSCME regional meeting: protecting the FRS

Hi all,

All the AFSCME locals in our region will be meeting to discuss strategies for protecting the Florida Retirement System from legislative attacks.

The meeting will take place Saturday, March 1st, 10am at the AFSCME region 3 office at 4014 Gunn Highway, Suite 20, Tampa, 33618.

ALL bargaining unit members are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion; however, only dues-paying union members will get to actually vote on whatever proposals emerge from the meeting.

This is an issue that affects us all!  Please give strong consideration to attending this meeting as well as participating in on-going efforts to protect one of the best retirement systems in the country.

Please feel free to email or call me.  Work 813 974-1740; home 813 673-8371.

President, AFSCME 3342

Meeting on Monday, December 9, 2013

To the Members of AFSCME 3342

Please spend some time this week thinking about what you want your union to look like, what you want it to accomplish, and what skills you can bring to the mix.  Then come to the membership meeting on Monday, December 9th (5pm in FAH 110) to participate in rebuilding our union into something we can all get behind.   

We do have to elect officers, but there is no need for any officer to be responsible for doing all the work of each office.  We can make choices.  We can choose to work individually or in pairs or teams.  We can choose to do what works for US.

Everyone has a skill or two to share!  Are you good at financial paperwork?  Research?  Numbers crunching?  Writing?  Organizing?  Are you good with people, details, pictures, words, ideas?  Bring hearts, minds and skills to the table and let’s build a union worth bragging about!
