Call for 2019 Delegates for AFSCME Council 75 Convention
Posted On: Jan 09, 2019
If you are interested in shaping the future of AFSCME in Oregon as well as Salem, consider running for one of our local's five delegate positions to the AFSCME Council 75 Convention.
Nominations for the five delegate positions and five alternate positions must be made in person at Local 2067's general membership meeting on February 14th. The meeting will be at the Union Hall starting at 5 p.m. You may nominate yourself at the meeting or have someone else nominate you.
In the event only five people are nominated as delegates and five people nominated as alternates, those individuals will be considered elected. If more people are nominated, an election will be scheduled in March.
Delegates attend the a three-day convention which includes speeches from union officers, repoerts from committees, the making of and debating motions and election of officers.
This year's convention will be in Salem April 26th through April 28th at the Salem Convention Center. Registration and meals will be paid by the local, but you will be required to use paid-time off for any missed work shifts.
Councils are a part of AFSCME's administrative structure, providing additional support to member locals. Council 75 provides our local access to paid staff that help us negotiate contracts, handle grievances, arbitrate, educate members, provide public relations and work on legislative and political action.
