Congratulations to Triage employees

It gives us great pleasure to announce, the employees of Triage stood together yesterday and voted to be represented by the IBEW local 824. Thank you to all our FNFT's who have worked with these MDU technicians recently and shared words of encouragement and support for their right to organize. The election was the first step to reaching a fair and equitable contract for these workers. In an effort to find out the issues of importance for bargaining, we are scheduling meetings with these technicians to start putting together proposals. Please continue to support our newest group of organized workers as we begin the bargaining process.

IBEW Founders' Scholarship

 The IBEW Founders’ Scholarship honors the dedicated wiremen and linemen who founded the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Each year the officers of the IBEW are pleased to offer its working members scholarships on a competitive basis. It is hoped that the awards will not only contribute to the personal development of our members but also steward the electrical industry that our founders envisioned.
An application for the IBEW Founders’ Scholarship (Form 172) is available on the IBEW website www.ibew.org/FoundersScholarship

National Survey of Working Women

 Sisters and Brothers:

 I hope to encourage all Sisters of the Florida Labor Movement and Working Women
from all sectors to take the survey.  The results will assist to guide specific
issues and policies of the AFL-CIO in the future.

It's been over five years since our federation asked working women about
their priorities and experiences. With the economy in slow recovery, a new
wave of attacks on collective bargaining, and a presidential election on
the horizon, working women's voices are now more important than ever.

The new National Survey of Working Women was developed under the guidance
of the AFL-CIO Executive Council Committee on Women Workers, key partners
and affiliates, and experts throughout the progressive movement. With this
tool, we hope to capture a multi-faceted picture of the lives of working
women across the country, both union and non-union.

The survey is available at
go.aflcio.org/WomensSurvey<http://go.aflcio.org/WomensSurvey>.

We invite you, your members and your community partners to participate in
the survey. We cannot be successful without your help!
Place a link to the survey on your website, send out an email to your
women members asking them to take the survey, and promote it through
social media.  The final report will be released in time for Women's
History Month, March 2016.
