A new way to share information

FOCUS ON is a section designed to delivering news and information by agency/worksite/institution.

Our union uses Policy Committees to organize representation, so we’re applying this organizational structure to delivery of articles, UMCC notes, bargaining unit blog and reports to the members by Policy Committees.

This is a new concept for delivery of information to members so let us know what you think about FOCUS ON and make suggestions about additional content. Leave comments below or use CONTACT US to send your suggestions privately.
