Every union’s most powerful tool is their membership. With your participation, we can achieve our goals. The VOC provides you with the right information and the opportunity to take action . It has become more important than ever to have union members playing an active role in local government. Though making the leap from union member to union citizen can seem daunting, the place to start is by joining our Volunteer Organizing Committee (VOC). At a VOC meeting, you will learn about the history of our trade and hone your skills. These skills you learn alongside your fellow Brothers and Sisters are effective on the jobsite, at union meetings and in life. To learn more about our VOC, attend the next Local Union meeting, which is held the first Monday of the month.
At the VOC meetings, we focus on:
- Grass roots organizing
- Special presentations fro leadership
- Guest speakers
- Shop Steward training programs
- Receiving invaluable feedback from our membership
- Dispelling the rumors about the union and our membership
