Our union socials are wonderful!
But when I joined the union as a member more than ten years ago, I thought socials were all the union did, outside of bargaining and grievances
Maybe I just wasn't paying attention, but I think we did not have a very ACTIVE or ORGANIZED union. When I got involved 5 years ago in leadership, I knew we should be active.
I continue to model and encourage union activity.
Now, it is time to get ORGANIZED!
