Welcome Our New Vice President!

We are more than thrilled to announce that Aisha Burrell, a PSA floater in the Alder region will be our new Vice President. She has been our past secretary and current PSA-at-Large for the executive board. Aisha has been a longtime Union member and steward. Aisha is working to restart the listening sessions as well as other VP duties. So be on the lookout for further information as to dates and times for these meetings. They will be held via Zoom.

We have a Page-at-Large position open. If anyone has questions about what this position entails, or is willing to volunteer, please reach out to me or another Board member. We are always happy to have more new faces in an active role in our Union. Typically the position is one where you are available for the monthly E-Board or General Membership meetings.

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.
