Letter from the President:
Gary Kroeschel:

We did meet with CMS and the Federal Mediator; again it was very slow going as the mediator had to get up to speed with CMS.

The next negotiation session is scheduled for 10/29/12-10/31/12 in Tinley Park.

If you did not get a flyer, please let one of the Stewards know and we will assure you get the flyers next time.

11/07/12 Next Lunch time Meeting at the State House Inn:

We will have our next meeting at the State House Inn, 11:30-12:30 and 12:30-01:30.

Wednesday’s are AFSCME Green days:

We want to show Management our solidarity by wearing green on Wednesday’s. If you don’t have one of the Union shirts, anything green will work. Pins and lanyards should be arriving by the first week of November as well.

Officer changes:

Stephen Shafer has stepped down from his Treasure’s position and Jennifer Tuttle was appointed to fill the remainder of his term. Katie Zarack was appointed to fill the Recording Secretary’s term which Jennifer vacated.

We wish Jennifer and Katie the best of luck and Congrats!
