Message from the ULFA President
The ULFA Executive spent time this summer assessing the organizational structure of ULFA along with operational processes, and membership engagement. We’ve identified a number of areas where we need to make improvements (i.e. communication with the membership and local community, adding a third staff member to assist with grievances, etc.). We’ve met with three public relation (PR) firms to explore possibilities for developing a formal communications strategy. In addition, we are undertaking some longer-term strategic planning and working to solidify foundational elements that will help to guide the Association going forward. Some of the committees continued their work over the summer (e.g. Grievance Committee, Bargaining Resource Committee, etc.). Please refer to the specific Committee Reports provided in this newsletter.
