Stewards Meetings

There will be a “make up” meeting for Local 243 stewards at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 13, 2014 in Room B3275 at the Truax campus. The reMember Campaign will be discussed at this meeting.

The meeting replaces one scheduled earlier this week that had to be cancelled. All Local 243 members may attend this meeting.

The Local 243 Forum will hold a meeting at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 16, 2013 in Room A2029 on the Truax campus. There will also be teleconference access from other locations.

Following the Forum meeting, there will be a Local 243 Stewards meeting from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. in Room A2029 on the Truax campus to discuss plans for the ongoing reMember campaign.

All Local 243 union members are welcome to attend Forum and Stewards meetings.

All Local 243 members are invited to attend to next Stewards’ Meeting on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 in Room D2629 at the Truax campus.

In response to member feedback, this month we will try a new flexible schedule that offers two time options for attending the [same**] meeting. The first meeting session will be from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. The second meeting session will be from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.

In between the two meetings, Local 243 will serve a free communal meal from 5 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. (and, yes, you can bring your food to the second meeting). The meal is for members and their families.

In addition, we are arranging free child care from 3:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. so members with dependent children will know they are safe nearby. Look for more ‘family friendly’ efforts in the future

If you plan to dine with us on October 16, 2013 and/or if you require child care, please fill out our online reservation form and return it via e-mail before Tuesday, October 15, 2013 so that we will have enough food and child care assistance available.

Want to help protect our jobs and stand up for fairness in our workplace? Want to get more involved? Consider becoming a steward for either the PSRP or Faculty chapter of Local 243. Many hands make light work and our goal is to have two stewards per area. Even if you’re unsure, please stop by the next stewards’ meeting and see your union in action — and bring a friend!

The meeting will be held from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, 2013 in Room 120AB at the Truax campus.
