This is a reminder that the February Union meeting will take place this week at our new location: The Colorado Professional Fire Center (12 Lakeside Lane, Denver CO 80212) on Wednesday, February 7th at 7:00 pm and Thursday, February 8th at 8:30 am. A few things to be aware of:
1.) The Collective Bargaining Committee has been meeting in preparation for negotiations. You should have received a survey which will help guide the committee. If you did not receive a survey, it is likely you will need to update your e-mail address on the 858 Website, and then we can manually add you to the survey.
2.) **IMPORTANT** Due to multiple scheduling conflicts upcoming with the Legislative Conference, 9th District Conference, 4th of July, etc. the Union meeting dates will be changed in March, May, June, July. The March meeting will take place on March 14th at 7:00 PM and March 15th at 8:30 AM. We will be sending another notice to ensure our members are aware of the changes.
3.) At the January Executive Board meeting, there was a vote to add a new Coordinator position, and Greg Pixley was named the Local 858 Peer Support Coordinator. Greg brings great experience with his Peer Support Background, and we believe he will be an even greater asset to our members as a Board Member of Local 858.
4.) On March 14th Legacy Wealth will be available to provide financial education to our members. Topics covered will include 457/Deferred Comp, FPPA Pension options, Healthcare, taxes, etc. There are three sessions planned:
· Early Career: 8:30-10:00AM
· Mid Career: 12:00-1:30 PM
· Late Career: 5:00-6:30 PM
If you would like to attend these educational sessions, please RSVP to Director Cory DeBaere at Coryd858@gmail.com.
