Dear Members, I have two important announcements. If you are interested in one or both please follow up. We can only be a stronger union if we have members who are engaged and active in initiatives like these.
UFF Organizing Fellows Program
UFF is continuing their Organizing Fellows Program to help reach out to potential new members. Fellows will work from June 1-August 31 for 10 hours a week. Fellows will be paid $20 an hour for this work throughout the summer.
To apply to the program please go to the Fellows Application Link: https://forms.gle/4hF1dSvij6mJeaLP9
For any questions, please email Lauren Byers (firstname.lastname@example.org) and get your application in today!
Stewards Program Initiative
Your leadership team will launch a Stewards Program in the fall. We will be looking for members to volunteer to be a local liaison or point person for the union in each unit/division across campus. What this means is that we will have a designated person in each department, school, and division that can answer questions, communicate with you locally, and assist in keeping members engaged and informed throughout the year.
To provide more information and answer questions about the Stewards Program we will be hosting a Stewards Virtual Town Hall on June 17, 2021 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time.
Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
