This committee’s purpose is to plan informal get-togethers and a few more structured events for our association. The main purpose is to create more unity for our association.

Action Committee

This committee is in conjunction with negotiations. Occasionally, job actions are needed during the collective bargaining process. To be proactive, we will form the committee now, with the hope that none are needed.

Insurance Committee

This is a new committee which we hope to fill with a few members that are willing to be educated in and become familiar with all of the new insurance information so that, in turn, they can educate our members.
