NJC 2015-Solidarity Overcomes Inequality


National Joint Council
Las Vegas, Nevada

Jan 18-22, 2015

Solidarity Overcomes Inequality
 

To: All NOLSW local unit officers and members
From: Gordon Deane, NOLSW President
Date: September 2014

This National Joint Council (NJC) will be held at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 18-22, 2015. The NJC is the one time every 18 months that NOLSW members from around the country gather in one place to attend workshops, listen to speakers, discuss issues, solve problems, and HAVE FUN!

With mid-term elections looming, we face an uncertain future. Income inequality has reached proportions not seen since the era of the Robber Barons. In the wake of Citizens United, plutocrats are pouring billions of dollars into the political process, too often convincing working people to vote against their own economic interests. In state after state controlled by Republican legislatures and Governors, voting laws are being changed with deliberate intent to disenfranchise poor and minority voters.

At the same time, there is a growing awareness among many Americans that our country is going in the wrong direction. Around the country, activists are coming together to shine a spotlight on economic injustice and political corruption. Ordinary people, working together, are beginning to demand that politicians stop catering to the über-wealthy and corporations, and start representing the interests of working people. Please join us at the NJC--when our voices come together in support of a common cause—

Changes Afoot at NOLSW Midwest Office
John Bowman is retiring after 20 years of service to our Union.  His last day on the job will be April 30.  We will miss his home-spun phrases and his impressive bargaining skills.  John says he plans to sit in a rocking chair on his front porch and wait for the Postman to bring his Social Security check… (We suspect he will also spend some time with his grandkids.) There will will be a party for John in the Midwest office after work on Friday, May 9th. More details will be forthcoming as plans are finalized.
 
We are also pleased to announce the arrival of our new Regional Organizer, Laura Hebert. Laura started work on March 31, and will begin taking over Midwest region assignments over the next month. We are very happy and fortunate to have Laura with us. She has more than 20 years of experience working in the labor movement, bargaining, organizing and handling grievances and arbitrations. Laura worked previously as a staff member with 1199, SEIU, and the Physicians Union.  John and Tim will be taking Laura around to meet the unit leadership.  Laura’s extension on the Midwest office phone system is 103.
