The Steward 2 course is for members who have completed Steward 1 training and offers additional instruction in writing grievances, investigating complaints and incidents, dealing with management, CBA analysis, Call Steward, Hiring Hall paperwork, and a lot more. In addition, the second day, October 6th, we will be offering the Steward exam.

Note that the Business Agent is under standing orders from the membership to appoint and crew stewards who have passed this test and attended these classes above other considerations. Also note that in order to keep your qualified steward status you are required to re-certify bi-annually.

AFL-CIO Labor Day Fish Fry

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The annual TX AFL-CIO Labor Day Fish Fry celebration will occur on:

Friday, September 2, 2016 starting at 5PM  at NALC 181 Union Hall (National Assoc. of Letter Carriers),  601 Williams Street, Austin, TX. 78752.

Freshly fried fish, side dishes and beverages (beer and soft drinks) are available to you upon the purchase of a $10 ticket. All proceeds go towards raising funds for the Central Labor Council who help push labor friendly legislation at the local level and support labor friendly legislation at the state level.

I have tickets available so that you may purchase your ticket now. Either contact me in person, or purchase your ticket from me at the August regular meeting.

This is a fun way to welcome in the Labor Day weekend. I hope you will attend.

In Solidarity,
President Magee.
