Local Dispatch (24/05/29)

Friends and comrades,
In this week's Dispatch, we are covering the National Day of Action that is happening tomorrow, as well as our next GMM.
I would also like to give a shoutout to our Social Committee, which hosted a wildly successful event last Friday at Bronx Bowling. If you'd like to attend or take part in planning social events, you can find information about upcoming events and the next meeting in the reminders section!

Day of Action

Tomorrow (May 30th) is our national Day of Action. This is the first in what is planned to be a series of monthly events to show support for our negotiators and our contract demands, as well as to show solidarity with our co-workers across the country.
If you are interested in helping with future actions in your facility, you can become a workfloor captain through the Building Worker Power program. If this interests you, contact our regional BWP coordinator James Ball (jball@cupw-sttp.org).
