Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Spring will be here soon and this miserable snow will soon be melted. Meanwhile there are a lot of things we have to look forward to.
Congratulations to Jorge Rodriguez who is our new Shop Chairman and has replaced John Melton. As most of you know, John has taken a position on the International Union Staff in the Health & Safety Department. Our 1st shift Zone Committeeman election to replace Jorge will be held on Thursday, March 7 and everyone assigned to the 1st shift who is a member in good standing is eligible to vote. We will also have elections that day for an Alternate Committeeperson in District 4 (1st shift) and a Committeeperson in District 11 (3rd shift) to replace members who are going to Bedford, Ohio. Good luck to everyone!
On the 9th of March we look forward to having the Boy Scouts in the plant for the annual Pinewood Derby. That is always an exciting day for all of us.
The next week, on March 16, will be our regular Union Meeting at 2:00 (executive board at 1:00). Please make an effort to attend the meetings where you can help make the decisions that affect the local union. After the meeting we’ll go to the City Union Mission Homeless Shelter and serve their evening meal.
On Saturday, March 23, the Easter Bunny will make an appearance for the kids and we’ll have breakfast for them. Be sure to bring your cameras!
With the next weekend being the Good Friday - Easter weekend the Union Hall will be closed on March 29.
I want to thank all of the committees for your cooperation in getting your schedules to me. It will help with planning our events for the Union Hall. If you need to add anything, please do it as soon as possible.
Remember to mark your calendar for all these important dates. Call the Union Hall if you have any questions, (913) 342-7330.
