Who wants to get involved?
Here is how it works: Once you are on a committee, you would request time off, (this is done by getting pre-approval with the local 2010 president (Currently John Paugh), then sending an email to your supervisor and admin requesting the date and number of hours off on that date for union business) once approval email is received from admin you are cleared to take the union time off for union business. Then you would submit your time, mileage, supplies to Jeremy Kittle our secretary/treasurer for reimbursement.
***PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ACCEPTING A POSITION LIGHTLY, THERE ARE A LOT OF LATE HOURS, DRIVING, CONFERENCE CALLS AND BEHIND THE SCENES THINGS THAT HAPPEN YOU DON'T GET PAID FOR***
Also, just because a current member holds a position for a committee doesn't mean it is not open to help or take over for them. We have 4-5 people doing most of the work currently and they need HELP.
