Hello fellow retirees!
We had approximately 15 people at our meeting on Wednesday, May 8th. Our attendance is growing, but we would love to see more of your retired faces there.
We discussed some of the problems that our folks were still having with their prescription and medical coverage.
The group spoke about speakers that they would like to hear from, and we held the election of officers.
Sandy Ambler was elected as president, Delmis Little was elected as Vice President, and Patti Wilkins was elected as Secretary/Treasure.
Business Manager, Robert Prunn gave us an update on insurance issues, as well as what is going on in the bargaining arena nationwide.
Local 824 could be facing a very difficult time in contract negotiations. We asked that the retirees be notified via email, when and if we could be of assistance in helping our union membership with picketing or other acts of solidarity. Remember the stronger our local union the more that both current and retired employees both benefit.
Following the meeting we shared refreshments and fellowship with one another.
If your are a retiree that would like to join our club, and would like to receive updates about when and where we meet, please notify the union hall. Our next meeting is to be held on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. at our Union hall located at 6603 E. Chelsea Street in Tampa.
Hope to See you there!
Patti A. Wilkins
