NSO hosted an Emerging Issues panel on Thursday afternoon to discuss the challenges facing our staff unions. Preparing for contentious bargaining, Janus, the loss of payroll deduction, right to work and other issues were addressed during the panel organized by Kelly Compeau of Pennsylvania. “Surviving is what we do best” Rich Grady said while laying out the issues facing Florida Staff Organization. Ohio PSU President Herman Pipe discussed member engagement in preparing for Janus with their Systemic Committee that includes management, governance and staff so they can have buy in with whatever is developed. NSO would like to receive updates on what each state is doing to prepare for Janus. Please send updates to firstname.lastname@example.org.
