The special elections issue of the CT News has been distributed. Use it to find all the information you will need for our October 25 elections: candidate statements, a forum schedule, and voting instructions, including absentee voting and rides to the polls. And don’t forget the Membership Meeting the next evening on October 26. As for that other election – the one on November 8 – President Deb Bittner uses her column to emphasize how important it is for union members to be involved. For members planning to take classes in the spring, please note the deadlines on page 8 for CTU’s educational loan.
