Updates to Hotline System Complete 

We have completed our system updates to the hotline distribution software containing over 30,000 individual users. Thank you for your patience as this update occurred!

We’re a Mobile Work Force  

Be on the lookout for a hotline about new features you’ll have when it comes to selecting any one or multiple base email lists! This system will continue to evolve to allow more flexibility and individual user control.

It’s about putting our union communications to work to better fit our lifestyles.
