Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I had a great opportunity to represent our members in Washington D.C., in April. I was asked to speak and sit on a panel at the Good Jobs, Green Jobs Conference. May 7th is Election Day, don’t forget to vote. The Primary Elections are just as important as the General Elections. Thank you to our Standing Committees and the all members who support them.
Temps to Entry Level Position
There will be twenty-five (25) Flex-Temps converted to Entry Level on 4/29/2013. Within that group sixteen (16) of our Flex members will have the opportunity to become Entry Level. Depending on how many Flex accept Entry Level, the remaining positions will be filled by our current Temps.
