We are members of the Committee on the Future, a diverse group of members and leaders representing the length and breadth of Local 73’s membership. We have spent hundreds of hours reviewing and debating the problems of the past and solutions to the challenges of the future. We all know that our union has had a lot of problems. That is why we proposed an action program and structure to build a stronger, more effective, and democratic union that puts member leadership and participation first. We did it! This was a historic vote for Local 73. We are a step closer to returning to self-governance.
