Education Conference This Weekend

Council 40 will be holding an Education Conference in WI Rapids this weekend.

This is a combined workshop for Correctional Officers, Health & Safety, Health Care Workers, Street and Highway Workers, and the Women's Committee.

The Convention starts on Friday and will run through Monday until 3:00P.

The workshop I am co-hosting with John Grabel and John English is on Friday the 6th from 10:30A until 12:15P. Our topic is CDL's and Budgets. John English will also be presenting a workshop on Bargaining Protection for CDL Holders. Currently, in Local 67's contract we have contact language that protects our members. Hopefully, we can work on getting all Locals to get similar protection within their contracts.

With the help of Sister Arndt we secured a State Patrol officer as speaker for the Saturday session called "Rules of the Road."

After the PEOPLE Convention, I am happy to see Ron Kent will be doing a workshop on Parliamentary Procedures.

The Street & Highway Worker's Advisory Committee will be meeting at 6P on Thursday evening. An election for the Chair of this Committee will take place at this meeting. I wish to thank all members for their past, present, and future support.
