10/10/2017

Dear Colleague,

►FSU Meeting: This Thursday, October 12, 11-1 pm, Campus Center, 2nd Floor, 2540:  We will discuss the budget cuts (what has occurred, what we have done) and bargaining.  We will also hold an FSU General Assembly meeting at approximately 12:15 or 12:30 to discuss and vote on a proposed change to the bylaws (see here; the FSU Executive Committee proposed and approved this proposed change—see Article III, Section 5). Only FSU members in good standing will be able to vote on this item at this General Assembly!  Lunch will be served; let us know if you plan to attend so we can ensure adequate food for you.  Note:  a previous email incorrectly said this was on a Wednesday. 

►Wednesday, October 18 is the Massachusetts AFL-CIO lobby day (for $15 minimum wage, less cost for health insurance for workers): For more information and to sign up, go to https://actionnetwork.org/events/all-union-lobby-day?link_id=0&can_id=f5fb9d24874ba1e66acb9949bbcf2564&source=email-action-alert-massachusetts-afl-cio-all-union-lobby-day-2&email_referrer=email_240880&email_subject=action-alert-massachusetts-afl-cio-all-union-lobby-day
