The DC 37 Organizing Dept. is continuing its series of work site meetings during April to inform members about their many union benefits. The meetings will take place during the hours noted below. The meetings will be at City University of New York and Dept. of Education work sites.

The department will also hold two activist training sessions, one for CUNY members and a general training for all members, to strengthen the power of our collective voice and equip members with the tools necessary to move forward together. To register for either training, call DC 37 Organizing at (212) 815-1095.

“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.”
