Why Attend Your Union Meetings?
As a member of Local 132, I’m sure that you are a hard working individual, possibly traveling some distance to work each day, and trying to keep employed in order to make a respectable living for you and your family. Sometimes you have to work late and can’t get off work, maybe you have to be home or take your child somewhere. It could be hard to find the time or you just feel like saying, Why Go?
Your hard work and payment of dues is what keeps Local 132 operating. We are asking you to be involved with your union; it would also be nice to have you there and to be able to see you in person.
Here are 10 top reasons why you should attend your union meetings
- Union meetings are what helped build the unions. By everyone discussing what is happening, or how to deal with what is coming, union meetings keep us aware, knowledgeable and keeps us strong.
- To be informed on what is going on in your particular area, and to find out what the work load is and what to expect in the future.
- To find out what is going on in the business and political world of your area and to be able to ask questions.
- To hear the business reports of what is going on in other areas of local 132. To also hear and understand the differences of the many areas of our local.
- To get first hand answers to any of your questions or hear the truth first hand of what is happening, not to just listen to the gossip of what is said in the field.
- Meetings are a good place to ask about your benefit packages. Also to find out what else is going on with other local unions around Ohio.
- Union meeting involvement helps keep the union strong in unity.
- At your union meeting you have a voice, and you can express your feelings or opinions without fear of retaliation.
- It is nice to have a relationship and rapport outside of work with your fellow brothers & sisters.
- The members make our Union strong, come and participate, become involved, and let us know how you feel.
The officers and staff of Local 132 look forward to seeing you at our monthly local union meetings.
