While many people savor time off over the holidays, 770 Brothers and Sisters are clocking-in for extra shifts to make sure those holidays go off without a hitch. For those of you on the job and to those who enjoyed a hard-earned break: thank you. I’ll respect your schedule and make this New Year’s message quick. I just need a minute of your time.
This union is powered by people. Never has that fact been more obvious to me than when sitting at a gathering of our GOTV volunteers just a few weeks ago. Many of these members had never stepped foot on a political campaign before. Yet they faced the sun and heat of Nevada with courage, canvassing for weeks on end to help workers win a historic victory in a right-to-work state. Not bad.
It’s this can-do spirit that makes you and your brothers and sisters the people I’m proud to wake up and fight for every day. To capture this spirit, though, and the wisdom that lives in each and every store, dispensary, pharmacy, and plan across this union, we’re trying something a little different this year.
In 2019, we’re launching a listening campaign to hear directly from you. You may get a call, email, or text soon, and I hope you’ll take the time to give us your honest feedback. What’s your top concern in a new contract? What are the news and issues keeping you up at night? What are your priorities both on and off the clock?
You’ll be hearing a lot more of this from Kathy in the coming weeks. For now, though, please make sure you’re following us on social so you can be heard.
