Good and Welfare is generally flowers or a fruit basket sent to members that are seriously ill or members who suffer the death of an immediate family member or a new birth in the members immediate family. As I stated generally, there are some exceptions that we decide on as they occur.

Per the Citywide Contract: Article 5, Section 5, Sub-Section 6:

Family member shall be defined as: spouse; natural, foster or step parent; child, brother or sister; father-in-law; mother-in-law; any relative residing in the household; and domestic partner, provided such domestic partner is registered pursuant to the terms set forth in the New York City Administrative Code Section 3-240 et seq.

When you send a request for Good and Welfare for a member you always have to include the member's name, agency and phone number. We need to know the where to send, the what to send and the who to send to.

President Report

August 17, 2018

Due to a conflict with an AFL-CIO COPE Convention on August 21, 2018, the Shop Steward meeting scheduled for this day is cancelled.

August 15, 2018

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I accept this very important office as President of Local 2627, DC 37. I want to thank you for your support in electing me to serve in this capacity.

I will discharge the duties of this office to the best of my abilities.

My vision, in a nutshell, is to make Local 2627, DC 37 a first-class union capable of delivering the most organized members and members that are ready to fight for workers' rights. I promise to fight to ensure that there are no givebacks, and to push for more education and advancement opportunities for our members.

One of my main objectives this year is to improve the following:
  • Better and more timely communications
  • Updated website
  • Updated constitution
  • Better member participation

I see my job as President to serve all of these objectives over the rest of my term as much as is humanly possible since these are things that a properly functioning union should be able to deliver at the minimum.

How do I propose to do this?

By enacting several committees to research and recommend the best path and options for implementation of the above mentioned changes. I believe in working with members to achieve these goals and listening to what direction that members want Local 2627, DC 37 to go towards.

I would like to enact the following committees:
  • Constitution — this committee will take a good hard look at bringing our constitution into the 21st century and removing irrelevant verbiage that does not justify the cost to our members
  • Membership — this committee will work on improving member benefits and identify other ways to enhance member participation
  • Alternative Work Schedule — this committee will work on the best way to bring back or improve alternative work schedules like compressed work week and look for a way to bring telecommuting to all our members
  • Organizing — this committee will work on ways to help organize all our members and help to keep our members informed and active

This is just the beginning!

I welcome any and all assistance in this endeavor.

Please reach out to me if you are interested in joining any of these committees.

During this transition period, I am the only one in the office and I have to spend a great deal of time in the field meeting with members and addressing their concerns. If you do not wish to leave a voice message, you can call the White Collar Division at (212)815-1060.

Together we can make this the most feared Local Union in the City of New York!

In Solidarity,
Laura Pirtle Morand
