OPEIU Erie Conference
Conference held May 3-6
Members of the OPEIU Local 512 board attended the Bi-Annual Region VII training conference that took place the first week of May. The conference took place in Baltimore Maryland, at the Maritime Institute. There were a number of courses on how to bring concerns to the attention of the lawmakers at all levels, be it on the local level, or the national level. The courses trained on who to set the meetings up with, and how to go about setting these meetings up. The training also included how to conduct the meetings. The International set up meetings with the offices of the senators and congressmen of the OPEIU members that attended the Erie Conference. This gave us the chance to bring concerns straight to the offices of the government officials whose decision making affect us all.
