The children whose holidays we hope to brighten are assisted by Bethany Home, Crittenton Centers, Mercy Home, My Joyful Heart, and Scwab Rehab Hospital. There are over 1000 children served by these organizations.

In the October issue of Frontline the information for the Unit 3 and 6 Union Meetings was wrong.

The time for the Unit 6 meeting was incorrect.
The Unit 6 meeting in Springfield will start at 7:00 pm.
Bargaining with JULIE began on October 10, 2017 and we have met with management several times since then. We have had discussions on many articles of our collective bargaining agreement which expires on November 15, 2017.
Many proposals have been passed back and forth. While we try to move forward management has passed regressive proposals. They currently want to eliminate your paid lunch periods. It will take the solidarity of all our members to reach a fair contract. We all must stand in solidarity!
