Members continue to rally for a contract. Let’s keep up the pressure!
“Our community came together last night at the KRC board meeting. We stood up for ourselves and the people we serve. Over 50 supporters came out and we had seven people share stories and call on the board to get more involved. Members and clients want this board to lead and because of our action, the new board president has taken an interest in the fact that management has different numbers for bargaining and board meetings.” – Maria Salinas
