SYRACUSE — This June 20-23, teams of CSEA activists will be spreading out throughout Syracuse and surrounding Onondaga County to visit the homes of Onondaga County workers and talk directly with them about the value of staying union strong.

These home visits are being conducted as part of our union’s Member Engagement outreach initiative. Activists volunteering for the first time for one of our “blitzes” will be offered training and be paired with union staff or activists who have done this work before. Everyone who has participated in the past comes back reporting that they had fun as well as having meaningful conversations with fellow members who want to stick with our union.

Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact Central Region Office Manager Doreen Gilbert at 315-433-0050. We will be seeking people who can volunteer a few hours, a few days, or anything in between!

Come join the fun and help recharge your own union activist batteries! Call today!
