At our last meeting on January 7, 2015, the Local 768 Election Committee gave its report on the just-conducted elections for officers. Several protests have been filed, and a meeting will be held at which the Committee will review and decide on the protests this coming Wednesday, January 14th, at 6p at DC 37. All Local 768 members can attend. Interim election results were also released.
The members approved the minutes of the last meeting, and also heard from Treasurer Caroline Hilton who gave the monthly report on the Local’s finances. Brother Reid, in his President’s Report, spoke of a DC 37 summit meeting of Local Presidents which will take place at the end of the month with our new Executive Director, Henry Garrido. Brother Reid will advance an activist agenda that calls for a meaningful response to the increasing concentration of wealth in our society and the steady stripping away of Union and working class power.
After the meeting, he addressed members concerns informally.
