The Future Is You!
Over the past several years your
local union has done scientific polling of the membership. Through these surveys the members have
identified their priorities. The union executive board has developed strategies
to address the highest priorities. Our next step is to engage the members to
plan for the future of the union. In the last survey you told us the best way
to do this was to have a member convention. And so we will.
We want to
recruit Local 328 union members to plan our initial union convention. We are
aiming for this family-oriented event to be on a Saturday in mid-October at an easily
accessible location in central Portland.
Initial planning will be completed
in time for the June 27 union executive board meeting. Final planning will be
completed by early August. We anticipate three meetings of 2 to 3 hours each.
We are doing a Zoomerang survey for our members about this project. Your input is important.
A link to the survey will be emailed to each member of our bargaining unit. Members without email will have access to a hard copy of the survey. Check your email this week!
