Latest union tactic. Home visits to shake members down for union dues .Ding dong. we're from da union. You with us, or not? No pressure..... Here is the letter from the Southern Lakes United Educators.


Dear SLUE Members,


The time for action is now. We still have members who have not signed up for continued SLUE/WEAC membership through Electronic Funds Transfer. Because we need to sign up as many of these members as possible, we are asking for your help.


We will train teams to make house visits with those members who still need to sign up for 2012. Volunteers will be paid by WEAC for their time doing this process. We are looking for approximately 22 volunteers. Home visits will take place throughout the summer, so you can plan around vacation time.


Training for home visits will take place from 9:00-11:00 on 6/20, 7/11, 7/18 and 8/1. If you can help, please call SLUE at 262-763-8423 or email Rick, Jerry, Sue, or myself at,,, or


Each and every one of you IS the union. For SLUE and WEAC to remain strong we need your collective voices. For us to continue to have a positive impact in education our voices must be heard. Please check your calendars and volunteer for one of the dates posted above.


Sincerely yours,

Ron Brandt

SLUE President
