I attended the last meeting the President called between herself and the Unions and the Senates. I wanted you to have access to the minutes, which I’ve linked here. I will continue to share minutes moving forward, as transparency is of the utmost importance.

In Spring 2018, my morale about our union was the lowest it had ever been in my 20 years here. I think, like many of you, then or now, I really questioned participating anymore. A small thimbleful of uncivil folks had ruined local meetings for me personally by then.
I reached out to local leadership that Spring to share my concerns and morale issues about BrCCC. I had been a good member, I thought. I attended and participated in meetings, got active when asked and proactive even when not, made motions, etc. But from my seat, it all seemed so ineffective — we were lacking key info, it was confusing, people seemed to be giving opinions and not fact, etc.
Then I was nominated to VP. Susan had been thrown into presidency the term prior and was integral in outing the last HR. She was goin’ for it, getting things done. So, long story short, I decided to live the “create the change you want to see in the world” philosophy before bailing out. I wanted to help her change things.
Fast forward to today. I regret that decision every. damn. day.
