Recently, direct care staff at the ARC of South Norfolk voted to unionize with AFSCME Council 93. Unfortunately, management has fought them every step of the way; from hiring a union buster to appealing every decision from the NLRB, management has refused to sit down and negotiate with staff.
This week, direct care staff are hosting a call-in campaign and ending the week with a march on the boss asking to negotiate. They need your support. Please make a phone call today!Please click here for a phone script (or email if you prefer) with contact information for the CEO and VP.
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of retired Chief Steward and Treasurer of Local 2222, Francis P Marty Quinn.
Every member of this local has benefited from the tireless work and dedication that Marty gave to the local through his many years of service. His dedication to the local was unmatched and we will be forever grateful to him.
Thank you to all who participated in the campaign for IBEW 2222 member & Chief Steward Paul Feeney, who was successful in his re-election bid for the Massachusetts State Senate. Senator Feeney will continue to be a strong voice and advocate for all.
Congratulations Senator Feeney, and thanks for all you do!!!
