President Report:  2017 1st. QTR Report

2017 has been a busy year so far, Texas State Committee of Presidents in Eagle Pass in January where all of the convention committee members were selected and other things were discussed by those present.

I had the opportunity to attend a political planning meeting at the Texas AFL-CIO office in Austin.  We recapped the legislative efforts of 2016.  There were plenty of speakers, including the AFL-CIO National Field Director, the Deputy Field Director, and the national AFL-CIO field and communication staff.  All of the Texas AFL-CIO staff was helping as well.  There were about 40 unions representing from all over Texas. I am excited about what we are doing in Texas.  Remember, local representatives become state representatives that become congressional representatives. Let’s build these relationships from the ground up.     More

 

Thank You and God Bless,

Darrell Issa (R-CA) offered four failed amendments related to delivery, including one that would require residential customers to opt out of a door delivery conversion within 30 days, in writing.   More
