The Locals goals are to encourage more member involvement, to reach out to any Unit who may need our help in Local 864. Local 864 is the 2nd largest Local in Region IV. With over 2,000 members, we should be able to help each other in our every day struggles with contract negotiations, electing politicians in our cities/towns/villages who respect working families and organizing more members.
The Local is here to work collectively as one TEAM for all our members. Some of our goals are to encourage more member involvement, to reach out to any Unit who may need help in succeeding to it’s full potential and to work together for all our members to face the challenges we all share ahead. The Local officers attend many seminars to keep up to date on the various issues, laws and changes that impact on the membership.
