President's Message
Joe Puleo

Thank You For Electing Us Back Into Office

Thank all to all our members who voted in the recent Local 983 Election and returned us to office. Your overwhelming support is a sign that you have placed your trust in us and appreciate everything we have done for you while we’ve been in office. We also thank the Election Committee for their hard work and diligence in what was a long process.

This was the first election where members had multiple ways of voting — in person, online, and via telephone. It successfully allowed easier access for members outside of midtown Manhattan to vote.

We have a lot of changes coming — all positive steps to make us even more accessible than we have been in the past. Last year, we redesigned and improved our website, implemented the Local 983 Union Strong Mobile App, and started utilizing an email blast system, all to keep you more aware of union news. Be sure you have signed up for everything so you stay in the know. You can do this all via our website at local983.com.

We are diligently working on settling all our contracts and making sure you get your raises soon. We are planning lunchtime meetings for members with Officers, more ways to reach your representatives, and emailing out monthly updates.

On behalf of my entire team, thank for you the overwhelming support you have shown us.
