This is a reminder that our upcoming Quarterly Meeting will be on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 starting at 10am, Pipefitters Hall on Gabriel Dr. in Augusta. We will have a busy schedule for this meeting with voting on proposals for Operational and Field Service Program, an update and meeting with the Executive Director for Maine MDA, state and national election updates and endorsements, Local updates. We will be reaching out to some of our endorsed candidates also to see if they can attend and briefly address the body. We will have the agenda sent out to the Locals in coming weeks.
DVP Mike Scott, who chaired the committee reviewing the OFSP, is preparing an overview of the proposals as discussed from last springs District meetings and the Quarterly meeting in Bangor last May. We will be sending them out prior to the meeting so you have it to review.
Also, the fall campaign season is now in full swing and we will be working with our endorsed candidates. We will be reaching out for your help on events and ways to help our candidates. We have a real opportunity to return to a state government that respects workers and their rights. But we can only do that if we participate and get out and vote.
We look forward to seeing all the PFFM Locals at the upcoming meeting.
