MayMembershipMeetingLeadershipBrothers and Sisters,

Here are two important documents: First, the DC 37 TENTATIVE ECONOMIC AGREEMENT_Highlights which DC 37 is about to consider at Tuesday’s Delegates Meeting. Second, Examples of Salaries and Back Pay showing the back wages which would be paid under this proposed agreement and the raises going forward.

Please make sure to attend our next General Membership meeting this coming Wednesday, July 9th, at 6PM at DC 37 Headquarters, 125 Barclay Street, Rooms 3 and 4. We will discuss all aspects of this proposal. I am especially concerned that we have enough Respiratory Therapists and Social Workers at the meeting. Please make a special effort to attend. Today is Independence Day, a day to celebrate independence and not war. Let’s be guided by the spirit of standing up for what we believe in and what we deserve. My best regards to you and your family on this holiday weekend. Fraternally, Fitz Reid President Local 768 DC 37 AFSCME AFL-CIO
