Next General Meeting on March 16

The first General Meeting for 2016 will be held on Wednesday, March 16 at 5pm, at Los Tres Amigos.  Appetizers and margaritas will be provided.  The restaurant is located at 1011 Century Drive, Edwardsville, IL.

Our Council Representative Ed LaPorte will provide important information regarding the state negotiations of our health insurance.

We will be establishing our Election Committee for our Local's 2016 election in September.  All officer positions are up for election as well as one Trustee and seven Stewards.  We will be seeking volunteers to serve on the committee, which is responsible for preparing the necessary mailings and ballots.

We will also be seeking volunteers for the Pre-Negotiation Committee, which is being chaired by Janice Kolkovich.  This committee will help prepare for negotiations of our next contract.  Our current contract expires on June 30, 2017.  We hope to begin negotiations later this year so that we have a contract in place when the existing contract expires.

Please RSVP to Vickie Sumner at or 650-3819.
