  Please take the FSU bargaining survey. It was sent on Tuesday, Feb. 7th with the subject:  ‘Your input is needed for bargaining.’ Because it is being sent by a third party, you may have received a notice saying that it failed the fraud detector test.  It is legitimate!  Please take it!  A reminder notice will be sent today.

ACTIVIST ALERT: Call your senators today to oppose Labor Secretary Nominee

2/1/17

Today is a national call in day against Secretary of Labor Nominee Puzder. 

Donald Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary—fast-food CEO Andrew Puzder— made his name opposing meaningful increases to the minimum wage and overtime as he ran a fast food conglomerate.  Puzder will make workplaces worse and place the interests of corporations above the interests of working families.

REMINDER: Speak out this Wednesday against proposed increases to health care costs

We’d like to remind you that the Group Insurance Commission will hear from you this Wednesday, February 1 at 12:30 about:
