Our primary goals are to negotiate - and maintain – strong employment conditions with good wages and benefits so that all classes of workers – and their employers – will benefit.
We encourage you to come back and visit us often, for it is here where you will be kept informed on local issues, and learn more about the labor environment at the local, state and national levels.
And one last thing: Good communication is vital to any business in today's society, and that includes keeping two-way communication strong in our local and our union. Your shop steward, in addition to representing you in union and workplace matters, is your first line of communication and is responsible for transmitting information to the Local.
