CSEA NON-MEMBERS - RESTRICTIONS
A reminder that non-members (Agency Shop) of the Union cannot, among other things, vote on the ratification of their contract or to elect their representatives. Every CSEA-eligible member pays dues, whether a member or a non-member. If you see an “A/S” after the dues deduction on your paystub, you are a non-member and are barred from participating in either of these activities. The Local will be mailing out letters to these individuals in the next few weeks. If you need a membership application, let me know.
CSEA SUPPORTING PUBLIC TELEVISION IN SYRACUSE
(Mark Kotzin, CSEA Region 5 Communications Specialist)
This year we are again sponsoring a CSEA night at Tel-Auc and would love to see the phones staffed by smiling CSEA members! It's a fun evening and it helps out our public television station in Syracuse.
Our evening will be on Saturday, April 29, and the first shift will be from 6 to 8:30 and the second shift from 8:30 to 11. You must arrive a half-hour before each shift for training. The event will be held at the WCNY studio at 415 W. Fayette Street.
To volunteer to work either shift, please call our volunteer coordinator Theresa Young at 315-420-6398. Please also let her know your tee shirt size, as we will attempt to have CSEA shirts for everyone who volunteers. Thanks in advance if you're able to help! Please share this with any members who might be willing to help us out. Call today, spots are limited!
