Have you ever wanted more options to keep up to date with your union?

Well now you can! We are very excited to announce that local 1857 recently rolled out a new secure text-based notification system for all members. This service will be used to provide our members with reminders of general membership meetings, information about upcoming union events, and updates on contract negotiations as they unfold.

This is an 1857 members-only service, and you are free to opt-out or change your designated phone number at any time. Please click here to be taken to the secure registration form,  and—while we work out the kinks—please allow up to one week to receive your first text.

Leave Bank

you_are_the_unionURGENT:  Donate some of your vacation hours to our Local 1857 Union Leave Bank in April!  You can donate as little as 1 hour, but please support the union and donate something.  The union works hard for its member, and this is a time for the members to show their support for their union.  These hours make sure our dedicated officers and union stewards are fairly compensated for the time they put in for the benefit of everyone.  Talk to your Union Stewards for more information.  Please support your union and the people who work hard on your behalf.  Download the form below, fill it out/sign it/date it, then either hand it to your union steward or mail the form in (the address is on the bottom of the form).

Print out the Union Leave Bank transfer form here.
