Bargaining Begins October 11

Dear AchieveKids Members:

We are officially starting contract negotiations on October 11, 2017.  After each session, we will be sending out bargaining updates.   Please do not direct deal with management about negotiations, as this can jeopardize our contract.

Your Bargaining Team will make decisions by consensus, speak with one voice, and involve the membership at every opportunity; we will not speak privately with members and will not contribute to rumors. We strive for the greatest good for the greatest number and will represent the entire bargaining unit.

Your Bargaining Team Members are:

  • Rod Hatch
  • Carl Hooper
  • Jeanette Da Rosa
  • Glenna Howe
  • Chris Sances
  • Jody Wong
