As most of you all know the Executive Orders are in effect and our hours have been cut in the union office. The union officials are now back in patient care taking care of the veterans. If you have not received an email or return phone call this is why. The office will be staffed with the following individuals on the following days:
Monday: Chris Smith
Tuesday: Alternating Debbie Brackenbury and Shelley Barney
Wednesday: Dr Janet Constance
Thursday: Rick Vest
Friday: Elena Sabido
Each day Jill Folsom will be in the office from 230pm to 430pm. Room M11-244 Ext 52040
Call first to make sure someone is there before making the hike up to the 11th floor, if we are representing an employee, then chances are the office will be closed.
