A message from Central Region President Ken Greenleaf
President’s Message – August 2020
“Budget Season, New Member Sign-Ups, and Federal Campaigns”
Brothers and Sisters,
I wanted to reach out and ask, how is everyone doing?
I know that it has been a challenge at times over the past few months finding the best ways to continue to represent our members and fill their needs. Together we are getting the work of our Union done.
I thank each and every one of you for continued hard work throughout this pandemic.
Just a few things to remember for the days ahead …
It is Budget Season. You will be getting a mailing soon from Statewide Treasurer Nicole Meeks. Budgets need to be approved at an Executive Board Meeting to go into effect on October 1. If you have any questions you can reach out to our Region Treasurer Amy Simmons (email@example.com).
We have been noticing a spike in the numbers of new employees not being signed up as members. It is imperative that you stay on top of this and meet with new employees as they are hired and explain the importance of becoming a member. Please remember we have New Employee Membership Kits that you can request through the Region Offices. As always, if you have specific questions or concerns, you can reach out to your Labor Relations Specialist.
Please remind your members to sign up for the CENSUS and to call their elected officials and tell them to support securing the federal funding needed to support Local and State Governments, Schools, Towns, and Villages. Without this necessary funding, we will see cuts in jobs and services – many of which our hard-working members provide. We all need to be in this fight together.
As always stay safe and let me know if the Region can help you in any way.
Kenny Greenleaf, President
