NTU Update - May 19, 2017 Part 2

Colleagues,

1) NTU Hall of Fame Dinner – Huge Kudos to the NTU Staff and Ed Resource Committee!  This year, we were able to give out 15 scholarships totaling $21,750 to our members and Newark students at our annual Hall of Fame Dinner.  Our fund raising efforts raised over $56K for this terrific event.

Pictures from the event will be posted on our website soon. 

2) NTU Election - On Friday, April 28th, those available, attended the NTU Elections nomination meeting.   I have been waiting for the certification letter from the NTU Elections Committee to share the results with you.  That notification is below. Only one slate was nominated and ran unopposed and by virtue of a nominal vote by a member in good standing, that slate was reelected to office. 

I feel it is important to note that running unopposed does NOT grant us a mandate, but calls upon us to prove ourselves worthy of the trust of those we already have, and to work to win the trust of those we do not while we continue the work to improve our union and the jobs of the professionals we represent.

In Solidarity,

John M Abeigon
