IEA ESP Council Elgin Assembly

What a great day spending it with Elgin area ESP’s! Thank you to our visitors who joined our meeting and giving us great insight into what is happening in their locals.

Concerns Discussed:

  • Bargaining/Negotiations
  • Fair Pay-some ESP’s are barely making over minimum wage
  • Retirement Benefits
  • Need for Full Time Nurses in Every Building
  • Concern regarding edays
  • Member apathy

Positives Discussed:

  • Some locals saw very few member losses due to Fare Share
  • Some growth in local memberships after Fare Share
  • Ideas shared to grow member awareness-tee shirts, newsletter, quick monthly 10 min meeting (snacks), council member to speak at local meeting, host summer event
