The previous message needs to be updated, following the Local 88 Executive Board meeting held on July 20.
Our Retiree Elections CANNOT be held prior to the Triennial Elections held by Local 88 this Fall.
Our elections shall be posted at a later date. As these are important positions, it would be nice to have a good turnout. We have over 1,000 retired members, and it doesn’t matter whether you pay our $2 monthly dues or not. EVERY retiree has both voice and vote, when it comes to either our own elections, or Local 88 Executive Board elections. These are very important rights that we have, and we should be using them whenever the occasion arises..
The pandemic has also changed gathering numbers. We can now hold meetings with up to 50 members, and that will probably change, ( hopefully), in a good way, by September.
When you come out to our next meeting, be sure to add or update your email address.
Stay and healthy.
In solidarity
