Membership Meetings Matter
Updated On: Apr 28, 2017
As we’ve often noted before, Local 153 general membership meetings are always the best way for members to learn more about their benefits, meet their union’s leaders and have any questions answered. Special guests often add to the important information distributed at these meetings, and there are almost always added highlights—in the last two years there have been raffles, video presentations, and even a fashion show!
At the most recent membership meeting, held during the week the nation observed the birthday of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., the union showed a video of Dr. King’s
“I Have a Dream” speech, followed by a video of the memorable remarks made by Senator Robert Kennedy the night Dr. King was assassinated.
Local 153 Business Manager Michael Goodwin talked about the benefits available to members, many of which appear in Local 153 News, and talked briefly about the presidential election of two months earlier.
Goodwin then introduced a guest speaker, Anthony Harmon, the President of the New York Chapter of the NAACP. Harmon thanked Local 153 for its decades of support in the fight for equal rights and he reminded those present that the fight for equality is far from over.
Local 153 Secretary-Treasurer and OPEIU International President Lanigan provided an insightful view on the role of unions in today’s political climate.
At the conclusion of the meeting a raffle was held for both those who
attended the meeting and for
those who work in shops that are more than 50 miles from Manhattan.
The results of the raffle for those who work more than 50 miles from Manhattan are as follows:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4: Sheila Banks, CWA District 1
Acer Laptop: Annette Pelliccia, Knights of Columbus
Nikon Coolpix S 7000: Dawn Alger, Wesleyan University
The results of the raffle for those
who attended the meeting are as follows:
Beats Headphones: Elizabeth Lopez, Citi Field
Fitbit Alta Fitness Wristband: Coleen Moore, Yankee Stadium
Fitbit Charge 2 Fitness Wristband: Alexandra Betenaides, UNITE HERE
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4: Joanne Perrotta, FCT
Acer Laptop: Jennifer Farrell, FCT
Nikon Coolpix S 7000: Claire LaFontant, Crowne Plaza Times Square
As you can see, membership meetings can be not only informative, but also rewarding!
We hope these photos from the most recent membership meeting encourage members to attend the next one, which will be held Tuesday, May 16, at 6:00 p.m. at Gertrude Lane Auditorium, 305 West 44th Street, mezzanine level.
