AFSCME Sub-chapter 161
The AFSCME Retirees will meet at the Wildwood Tavern in Niles on Wednesday, April 19th, at 11:30AM. The restaurant is on the corner of Touhy & Caldwell Avenues in Niles. Our speaker will be Ms. Denise Corkery, a spokeswoman for the Sierra Club. I’ve invited her so that she can tell you about her organization and the environmental challenges we face in the mid-west and Great Lakes region. I will have news from the 1st quarter meeting of Council 31 Retiree Officers conference that met on March 30-31 in Springfield. Mark you calendars to attend this meeting. There will be information and handouts to take home. Watch our blogsite for places to find the materials if you are unable to attend.
To be perfectly clear, nationally and in Illinois- we are in crisis.
Let me close on this hopeful note. You are among friends who have seen opportunity in this crisis and have been organizing a resistance. So come to the meeting and learn more about it and the role you will play.
