AFSCME Sub-chapter 161
We will meet again at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant at 5203 Old Orchard Road, Skokie, IL on Wednesday, 18th of November. The meeting starts at 11 AM.
Jason Kay will be our guest speaker. Mr. Kay is one of Council 31’s lobbyists. He is part of Council 31’s political staff. This month’s meeting will be focusing on PEOPLE and the retiree role in the upcoming election year. Jason has been involved in Council 31’s political efforts in Springfield for a number of years. I’ve asked him to share his perspective on what’s happened and what we need to be doing in order to support Council 31’s work to protect our pensions and benefits.
This will be a working meeting for members. We have unfinished election work. During the open discussion period, I will be listening for ideas of what we can do as political activists during 2016.
We need ideas for continuing our effort to build a active membership through person -to-person efforts and alliances with other organizations. I will bring materials from the recent conference as discussion aides.
