President's Report

November / December 2021

 

 

PROPOSED BYLAW CHANGES APPROVED BY MEMBERSHIP

 

      On Wednesday, December 1st, 2021, at the telephonic Branch membership meeting, all seventeen (17) Proposed By-Law changes were approved. These Proposed By-Law changes have been sent to the NALC Headquarters Committee of Laws for final approval. If approved by the Committee of Laws, the Proposed By-Laws will become effective immediately within the branch. I will inform the membership of the Committee’s

decision(s) in the next Branch 2184 Speaks.

 

CONTINUED TELEPHONIC MEETINGS

 

      We now have a new Covid-19 variant named Omicron. This variant seems to be spreading fast across the country. For everyone’s safety, I have decided to continue our meetings telephonically until further notice. The branch remains fully functional and will continue to provide services to the membership.

 

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER

 

      On December 2nd, 2021, I had the pleasure of going to the Plymouth Post Office to give a short Safety speech to the Plymouth employees and watch an award presentation given to Plymouth City Carrier James Stelma, for his Safety Slogan “Make Sure Your Mirrors are Clear Before putting the Vehicle in Gear”, that was chosen out of over six hundred different safety slogan entries, by the Michigan 1 Safety Committee. Also at

this award presentation was Region 6 Regional Administrative Assistant David Mudd, Detroit Postmaster Don Dombrow, POOM Tony Hubbard and Michigan 1 District Manager, Rick Moreton. I couldn’t be prouder of the Plymouth carriers for working safely and for brother James Stelma’s winning Safety Slogan.
