Vote on Constitution/Bylaws

The vote on our Constitution and Bylaws is tomorrow, Thursday, 6/14, from 2-5 pm, in conference room 1 at the hospital.  I encourage all members to come and vote.  It should be quick, just walk in, get checked off the list of members, vote, and you're done, much like voting in a general election. If you haven't had a chance to fill out a Membership Application, it's not a problem, you can fill one out then and vote.  As in all union elections, only members can vote.

I would also like to encourage people to sign up to serve on committees and/or as delegates (stewards).  Sign up sheets will be available Thursday.  Some of the committees are listed in the constitution ( Negotisting, Finance, Elections, Communication and Publicity, Grievance) but you'll notice on page 10, "Other Committees". 
Some of the possible ideas are: Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Recreation, Education, Workman's Comp, Workplace Violence and Safety, Political Liaison, and more. 

If you have something that interests you, maybe something you're already involved in, talk with us, maybe it's something union members could help with.

I also understand people are busy with life.  Maybe your time is so limited that you can only contribute ideas right now, that OK, we need good ideas, good guidance.

Our Local will be what we make it.
