2nd Bi-Monthly Pool Champions are Roger Daniels and Michael Willard
Despite looking as if they were trying to lose at times, in fact they often times looked like they didn’t know how to play at all, they were able to easily win 8 out of 10 matches to take a 2nd Championship in a row.
Shari Flory and Shane McDonnell did not stand a chance and even their alternate player Ian was not match for the champions.

Today as part of the convention, Roger Daniels was recognized for his strong commitment to everything the union stands for. He not only has done amazing things locally in our union, but has branched out to help other local unions as well as our State President, and our National Business Agents.
In order to recognize his achievements, he was awarded the John Kelly Award. This award is given to one outstanding individual each Convention for their outstanding performance and service.
Due to the diligent efforts of the Executive Board over the past several years, we have been able to use technology as well as other means to cut back spending in the local without any loss in representation of our membership.
Because of this, we would like to use some of our surplus to give back to the Members who support our efforts to make this local as strong and productive as possible. We are looking for ideas for what members would like in order to feel appreciated. It was suggested at the meeting to possibly do Shirts, Backpacks, lunch boxes, gift cards, etc. There are some issues that arise with the ideas of gift cards, but may still be an option.
If you have a suggestion of what would make you feel more appreciated, please let us know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org put Appreciation in the Subject line.
Thanks you all. Without you, we would not be here.
That being said if there is anything we can do to improve your representation, please let us know.

It has been brought to our attention that employees are being disciplined and emergency placed for answering the “Hazmat” question for the customer while on the window.
A button is available to Clerks to answer the question if the customer is not able to do so. It is our belief that if management does not want the employees to ever use that option, the option should be removed from the software.
If you receive discipline or are emergency placed for answering the Hazmat for a customer, contact your Union Steward or other Union Official immediately.
