I hope all members had a great Christmas with family and friends. It’s a nice time of the year to catch up with family and friends and enjoy life. We now ae back to work and those memories are behind us. Just a reminder to keep our minds on task at our worksites. Those same family and friends we just spent quality time with want to be able to spend more time with us.
Change is happening all the time. Some of it good and some of it not so good. We must adapt to some of these changes but if these changes involve violations of our contract language we must be prepared to defend the language. We do this by filing grievances and participating in your Local Unions meetings and committees.
Committee elections are taking place on Jan 13 at our monthly membership meeting. Come out to have a say on who is representing you on these committees or to put your name forward to become a member on a committee. Our Local works best with a lot of member participation. For those that are putting your names forward I thank you and for those that have been active and are taking leave I also thank you.
I would like to say thank you to our recreation committee for the job well done on putting together our annual Christmas dinner and dance. Also congratulations to all our retiree class of 2015!! Enjoy your new lives and spend your PPWC pensions to help keep our economy rolling.
See you all out and about,
