During the fall, the DC 37 Organizing Department will hold a series of lunch time meetings and activist training to strengthen the power of our collective voice and equip members with the tools necessary to move forward together.

Lunch Time meetings will be held throughout October at various New York Health and Hospitals locations citywide. For a leaflet with details, click here.

In addition, the next general activist training will be held in November at DC 37 union headquarters, with a second session to be scheduled about two weeks after the first session. To register for the training, call DC 37 Organizing at (212) 815-1095.

“These meetings and training 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.”

Come join us and get to know your union. Below is the schedule of Lunch Time Meetings and the next Activist Training.
