If you made it to this page, you’ve been had with a little fun from your friends at NSO 🙂 There is no app that can ever replace the hard work, dedication, and contract “know how” of our members and leaders.

Since you’ve been a part of our fun, please consider doing a good deed for a fellow union member to pay it forward. Here are some suggestions:

  • Reach out to a colleague via phone and pay them a compliment;
  • Write a note on social media about your favorite (appropriate) union memory;
  • Make a donation to the Karen Cherry Disaster Relief Fund. Learn more about it below or click the donate button —->


In 2005, the National Staff Organization established the NSO Disaster Relief Fund to assist active NSO members who have suffered property damage and financial loss as a result of a natural disaster. Past donations from our affiliates have helped NSO members who have sustained home damage as a result of hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. Donations to the NSO Disaster Relief Fund could help NSO members in the future who encounter such disasters as those enumerated above. The essence of this fund is to provide financial assistance to our brothers and sisters who encounter emergency situations. In short, donations from NSO affiliates make vital resources available at a time in our members’ lives when the need is greatest.

In 2013, the NSO Executive Committee renamed the Fund, the Karen Cherry Disaster Relief Fund. The goal of this fund centers on NSO members helping other NSO members in need. Karen Cherry’s (Michigan ASO) spirit epitomizes the goal of helping others. She passed away in September 2013, but her spirit will live on through the Disaster Relief Fund. Karen served as the NSO Research Committee chair. Daisies were her favorite flower.
