By a Vote of 71 to 50 the motion has passed to increase our Local dues $2.50 per pay period. I would first like to start by thanking those 121 members who
voted. Whether you voted for or against , you took the time to use your voice and vote. I can't tell you how proud I am of the membership for this passage
and the vote of confidence you have in your local. This increase will allow us to continue to educate our stewards and officers and provide you the members
with the best representation possible.
Again I say thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I'm proud to not only be a member of this local but also serve you as your president!
The struggle will always continue!
Wishing you and your families a Happy Holiday Season!
