Hello CSEA Local 694 Members,
As many of us are transitioning back to in-person operations at our respective work locations and others are still working in the virtual world, I do hope that things are going as smoothly as possible. I wanted to reach out and remind you that if you are having any issues or have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of your local officers to see if we may assist you. We have been doing safety assessments of our locations and to the extent possible making site visits, as well as going over staffing plans, to ensure that the workplace is as safe and healthy as can be for our members. I am happy to report that management has been working very well with the union and listening to our suggestions.
As it is not feasible at this time to schedule a local membership meeting, we did not want to postpone any longer the scholarship award program that we have been able to do in our local for many years. To that end, we are extending the deadline for scholarship applications to be submitted. The new deadline is now June 26, 2020. We will then select the winners on June 30, 2020 and notify all winners by email. Good luck to those applying.
We will see how everything progresses and when we can find some sort of constant, we will try to set up a membership meeting hopefully sometime in the Fall. If we cannot do it in person, we will look at a way to possibly have a “virtual” membership meeting. In the meantime, we will continue to send out blast emails on any information that is important for you to know.
One last item, if you know of a co-worker who is a member of our local not receiving our emails but would like to, please have them contact one of us so that we may add them to our list.
Thank you again for all you have been doing and we hope your families are all staying healthy.
