September Monthly Meeting on Thursday

The September monthly membership meeting of AFSCME Local 965 will be tomorrow at 4:15 at Jim's Razorback Pizza on West 6th. Pizza provided; beverages on your own. Bring a new member.

Please bring canned goods for donation to the Seven Hills Homeless Shelter.

Brother Fillan will present a report on the UALR Stewards Seminar which he recently completed and other training available from the Labor Education Program. The agenda includes a decision on whether to contact the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Education requesting assistance in correcting the University's practice of paying female faculty less than their male colleagues. We will also be discussing the union's plans to conduct a campus-wide survey on the demand for a child care cooperative on campus for employees and non-traditional students. Brother Lioneld will provide information on the Northwest Arkansas Labor Council's plans for the Citizen Leadership Academy and the upcoming labor picnic.
