State Clerical Stewards Mobilize
Members of Local 562 at the Statewide Stewards Training.
State clerical employees learned about those challenges -- the tools that will be needed to protect middle class living standards -- during the 10th Annual NP-3 Administrative Clerical Statewide Steward Training & Recognition Day May 18 in New Haven.
"We designed this day to thank our union stewards for their dedication and service," said Local 562 and Council 4 Executive Board member Thursa Isaac, "but we also see it as an opportunity to ask for an even stronger commitment to building their union."
That commitment, Isaac said, can come in many forms, from fighting to protect members' contractual rights at work to volunteering to help worker-friendly candidates seeking political office.
House Speaker Chris Donovan keynoted the Stewards Recognition ceremony. Donovan is seeking to represent Connecticut's 5th Congressional District in this November's election.
L-R: Rebecca Bleeker (Local 610); Anna C. Cruz (Local 478), Denise Stevenson (Local 704) and Kelly Martinez of Council 4.
