Change, Is It for the Better?

The longest national convention just ended in Grand Rapids. The adjourning gavel sounded at 9:14 pm on Friday night. But the change of the convention started before Friday night. It started with our union opening to changing the agenda. There was a change because of appeals needing to be heard. Because of those appeals there was a change made in several positions on the national board. Every position but one had opposition in the running. A new president, vice-president, director of labor relations and steward operations were elected. Seven union members were vying for executive committeeman. Your union was not afraid to make a change. We listened, and we voted to make a change and be union strong.
Change can be a scary thing but sometimes a necessary one. Is something going on in your office that would require you to change? Would that change be you standing up for something that is being handled wrong? Is the matrix not being followed? Is your postmaster making you do something against the contract? This means a change needs to come from you. But all you must do is start the change. You see you are not alone, the union is with you. Don’t be afraid to make a change, be afraid not to try and change.

Kim Harrell, KYRLCA BOARD
