AFSCME Sub-chapter 161
We will meet again at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant at 5203 Old Orchard Road, Skokie,Il. on Wednesday, December 17th. The meeting starts at 11 AM.
This will be a working meeting for members. Rauner’s election has added an urgency to our efforts of developing an active retiree Sub-Chapter.
Because of all the past work, we will be building on what we have done as individuals and with others. I have sought the counsel of our Executive Board. They have defined the threat. Additionally, we identified challenges and possible opportunities. A list has been compiled. When approved by the board members, I’ll have John Metz post it on our Website. I have forwarded a description of six levels of competence of our active members. Please read it. We will be referring to both in order to prioritize our goals and the means we have to reach them. It will be part of the workshop plan you will help to create.
The is an old union expression that there is strength in numbers. It says a lot, but misses a lot. The strength is in working associations old and new. It is in the trust we have in one another. Welcome to the fight.
