Message from the Administration

Dear members,

In the next few weeks you will be able to actively participate in the future of Local 375. AFSCME’s 43rd International Convention will be held July 16-20, 2018 in Boston, MA. Local 375 will be sending ten (10) delegates to participate. Nominations for those delegates will take place on Thursday, May 17th at 6 pm in Room #1 at DC 37. If there are more nominees that positions, AAA will administer a mail ballot election to determine the delegates. Please take this opportunity to help determine who will best represent your interests at the convention.

Any member with a damaged or missing ballot should contact AAA directly by calling there Duplicate Hotline 1800-529-5218 Monday - Friday, 9 am - 5 pm.

Additionally, a committee of seven chapter presidents has been working with the Administratorship to amend the Local 375 Constitution. The primary purposes of these amendments are to revise or remove conflicting provisions in the current constitution, revise or remove unenforceable provisions in the current constitution and to streamline governance.
