Celebrate Valentine's Day with the FSU!

2/14/18

Dear FSU Member,

Happy Valentine’s Day! We thought we’d share the love with our leaders at UMass and in the state (see the attached flyers).

We also want to share our love for you, without which we would not be strong, and hope all members will show their love for their union. So If you happen to be near Quinn today, come by the FSU office (2nd floor, room 81A) for a candy treat.

Sincerely,

Marlene Kim

FSU President,

Professor, Economics
