     President Danny Donohue in touch with
The WorkForce
Stronger together in summer and every other season
         It may be summer, but in CSEA, we Never Quit.
The work that most of us do requires our continued effort all year long. If we work in human services, people need help or attention every day and night.
If we’re maintaining roads, water and sewer systems, there’s always something that has to get done. Libraries, schools, and universities have programs or prep work in every season.
Some of that work is highlighted
in this edition of The Work Force. Take
a look at it because it will help you to better understand the responsibilities and dedication of your brothers and sisters
in CSEA. That’s important because we always should support and Never Quit on each other — that solidarity is what CSEA is all about.
When we support each other and Never Quit, we are stronger, together.
There’s more evidence of what we can achieve by working together in
the successes of this year’s legislative session (see pages 3 and 7). CSEA achieved important positive results for veterans, child protective services workers; sanitation road workers, mental health and developmental disabilities services, DMNA firefighters and struggling hospitals. These are real achievements that will help you, your co-workers
and your communities and none of us should take that for granted. It happened because many CSEA members worked together and Never Quit.
These are just some of the reasons why we should all be proud to be CSEA.
