My name is Michael Stewart and I am running to be a delegate to the International Convention to do the work the members of our local. The international convention is an opportunity for member leaders to determine the direction our union takes over the course of the next two years. I have, in partnership with other member leaders, been very active in submitting resolutions to the convention as well as supporting resolutions submitted by others that address issues facing workers and working families.
I have been a member leader serving in various capacities in Local 328 and Council 75. I was instrumental in initiating the intervention to improve the working conditions of our EVS workers and address the inappropriate and abusive behavior of EVS managers and supervisors. I have been our local’s political action committee chair and am currently the Chief Steward. I am Special Sector Vice President for our council and will bring this experience and work ethic in representing Local 328 at the International Convention and I ask for your vote. Thank you.
Hi, My name is Roxana Logsdon and I would like to be one of our union delegates to the National Convention.. I have been with OHSU for almost 8 years as well as an AFSCME member, I have just stated to learn about the great opportunities that our union offers and am becoming a more active member. I believe being your delegate is a great way to learn more of the process. I have been both a manager and associate in previous positions and believe this gives me a unique view and insight to both sides. Please vote for me, Roxana Logsdon
Two years ago I was elected to attend the AFSCME International Convention, in Chicago. The experience opened my eyes to the power of a strong union. I would like the opportunity to attend this year’s convention in Las Vegas. By participating in the events at the convention, I will get the chance to learn from other union members from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. I will bring back the knowledge I’ll gained to our union at OHSU. My desire is for AFSMCE Local 328 to be a dynamic and active force for empowerment and change in the workplace. In addition, I would like to serve on the next bargaining team, to help increase our membership by educating our coworkers about the union difference, so we can be AFSCME-strong for our next contract negotiations. Attending the convention will enhance my skills to help me accomplish these goals. Please vote for Kelli Byrd. Thank you.
Members, I am running for one of the spots in the Delegation Convention, and I would appreciate that you would vote for me to attend this great opportunity to further my opinion in helping this union.
I have been with OHSU for over 17 years. I have been a union steward for the last several years, being more involved with the union to help me connect better with my fellow co-workers. To help them understand the value of the union contract and to empower them with knowledge and how best to utilize the contract on their issues they are currently dealing with.
I am also part of the AFSCME strong team, which would allow me to connect more with the members and to make this union, stronger and cohesive. I think it would be beneficial for me to go to this convention so I can be more knowledgeable on current procedures and information on this Delegation.
Please vote for me go to AFSCME 328 website. Log on to member’s assistant and vote for me please!
Brothers & Sisters of AFSCME Local 328,
I have been a steward for AFSCME Local 328 for about eight years and am now your chief steward. I have served in all levels of the steward program — investigatory, grievance, lead and chief steward. I find the work interesting, rewarding and challenging, which is why I’ve been a steward for so long and why I ran for the office of chief steward.
Getting involved in the steward program appealed to me as a way to help our members even the playing field when dealing with OHSU management — representing someone who was unjustly disciplined, fighting for someone to get to use the vacation days they have earned and everything in between. Advocating for my fellow workers has been very rewarding.
What I hadn’t counted on was how it would help me personally. Being a steward has increased my self-confidence, thus improving my ability to advocate for positive change both in and outside the workplace. My coworkers often come to me for help and advice about work issues; even my manager and supervisor approach me with policy and contract questions. This contributes to a sense of accomplishment that I would not have had without the training, camaraderie and advocacy that comes with being involved in our union’s steward program.
If this sounds good to you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (971) 404-9699 with further questions or to sign up to become a steward. Our union needs you!
Michael Stewart, Chief Steward
AFSCME Local 328
