June 8th through the 11th is Council 2’s 56th Biennial Convention taking place in Spokane at the Davenport Grand Hotel in downtown Spokane. This convention is an important one as we will be electing the Executive Director for Council 2, along with considering a number of other proposals for how the whole of our umbrella union works. At our General Membership Meeting in May we will elect delegate members to attend. If you are interested in attending the convention, please attend the May 5th meeting so that you can be present for further information. 1857 does reimburse for travel, hotel and other per diem costs for those who attend.
