The DC 37 Organizing Dept. will host a series of work site meetings in February and March to inform members about union benefits and activities.

The meetings also aim to encourage members to participate more in union activities.

“These meetings are part of an effort to strengthen the union from the grassroots,” said Barbara Terrelonge, director of the DC 37 Organizing Dept. “With more active members, our union will be stronger, whether that involves our involvement in a contract fight, political activities or protecting coworkers in the workplace.”
