Checking-In/Reminders

Greetings NEA-Jurupa family,

 

I hope you had a restful weekend! Only a few days until a much needed week off (and then only 3 weeks until 3 weeks off)!!!

 

 

Just wanted to provide you with a few quick reminders:

 

Surveys:

 

Initial Bargaining Survey: Please complete this by, tomorrow Wednesday, November 17th, at 4 p.m. Our Bargaining Team will be using this to determine which Articles will be opened up for our next cycle.
