FROM THE DESK OF
Scott Marsyla, Local 70 Business Manager
Local 70 Members,
November is here already; I cannot believe how the year has flown by. This is a busy month for a lot of us with deer hunting, planning for Thanksgiving with our families, fall cleanup and getting ready for winter.
I would like to take a moment and recognize another very important day.
I would like to introduce myself as the new Business Manager of Local 70, effective today, July 1, 2022. I have been a Local 70 member since 2009. I started working at Abbott Northwestern Hospital as a Maintenance Engineer and took a position with Local 70 in 2012 as a Business Representative and Instructor. During the time I was a Business Representative and Instructor I took on the role of Education Director as well.
As Business Manager, I look forward to the continuation of service to our members and continuing to grow our membership and education opportunities.
For our members – If there is anything you need, please contact the Business Representative for your contract, our office, or me with any questions or concerns.
Brothers and Sisters, Happy Thursday
This past Tuesday was the second Tuesday of the month which means that Local 70 had the regularly scheduled General Membership meeting at the North St. Paul American Legion. At that meeting the main subject for business was the proposal to increase monthly dues for all members. The dues increase was passed, and the new rates will be effective July 1, 2022.
