Welcome New and Continuing Forestry Local 629 Members

I would like to welcome the many new members to Forestry Local 629.  Your membership does make a difference when it comes to bargaining and having a voice in the workplace or on the fireline.  An immediate benifit of membership is that you have the opportunity to vote wether to accept or reject the tentative agreement negotiated on our behalf by Union bargaining team.  Details about the agreement can be seen here:

Another benifit is being able to join in the conversation about how our Local is run. This Wednesday, July 15th there will be a conference call to share what is going on at the leadership level and listen to concerns from the membership.  One topic will be how to become a Steward with the Forestry Local.  The call is planned from 7:00 to 8:00 pm and a toll free conference call number can be obtained from Dave Wells, Local President or Mike Bray, SEIU 503 Staff Organizer.

I would like to hear from you, and be safe.
