Having active site representatives at each worksite ensures our rights on the job and strengthens our chapter by keeping everyone informed. Site representatives funnel information from chapter members to chapter leaders and vice versa. They help resolve most issues at the site before they get out of hand. Member involvement is important to maintaining an effective site representative program. Here are some things you can do:
* Use your site representative. Effective communication about your rights and union activities is an important first step toward creating a better work environment for everyone.
* Volunteer to be a site representative or help find someone to volunteer. Pass on the name of your new site rep to our chapter officers.
* Sign up for a site rep training. Our CSEA field office offers comprehensive site representative training. Trainers provide all the information and supplies necessary to be an effective site representative.
If you would like to be a site representative, please contact Gladys Fetter, our site rep coordinator, at Topaz Elementary.
