Dues and a New Destination for Wednesday Night
So I just wanted to update everyone on the latest on the automatic dues deduction-- we are truly, actually, finally on the verge. Vicki and the folks at local 9400 have worked out a deal with the Building Trades Federal Credit Union where we can open accounts free of charge to deposit our dues in-- once it's fully ready to go, I'll get you all the necessary info and paperwork so you can handle it in the way that works best for you. For March and April, I'll be road-testing it with my own dues, just to work out any kinks and as soon as that's online, we'll make the switch.
In the meantime, however, if you wouldn't mind mailing in your checks to the local-- thanks to everyone who's already done so. As a reminder, it's 2.25 times your hourly wage, made payable to CWA 9400. Mail them to CWA local 9400, attn: Vicki Di Paolo, 7844 Rosecrans Ave., Paramount, Ca. 90723.
And speaking of those dues, Alex Dobuzinskis asked the quite reasonable question of where those dues go and how they're spent. So we asked Vicki to run down the appropriate numbers, which she's having charted right now. As soon as I get those, I'll pass them along to everyone.
As the final point, in light of Val's message, heck, let's head back to good ol' Pickwick for our Wednesday happy hour. As much as I enjoy the White Harte, I'm interested to see if the rebuilt pub has the grungy charm of the original. So on Wednesday, let's meet up at 21010 Ventura Blvd. (between DeSoto and Canoga) and welcome back our old haunt around 6 p.m. or so.
Hope to see y'all there...
