Many Region 8 activists attended a leadership conference last weekend where they learned about the need for all of us(members) to reconnect. The feeling that we are the leaders and other members are just members who are getting a service from their union, has to stop. We are ALL in this together and it’s time that all of our members realize that. So, we are learning how to to reclaim the promise of our union. How to rebuild our relationships and fight back against the Corporate CEO’s and the wealthiest 1% who would like to destroy the only power that the working class have! It is only through joining together in Unions that we have any power over our pay, our benefits, our retirement and over the political process. Let’s work together as a strong union to get a great contract and stop the privatization of state services.
There was much to learn and attendees tell me that they are anxious to help build a new PEF. One that includes a true connection between all members! This conference was just the start. PEF Proud to serve!
