One member was eager to see the union at their job. The member shared how they grew up in a union household and had always joined unions wherever they worked. This member struck up a lengthy conversation with the organizer and ultimately showed interest in serving as a steward and a committed union activist.
Another great feeling for the union was one member who learned more about the 2020 raises MPEC fought for and negotiated. In addition to learning about their raises, the member also learned about a number of benefits MPEC members receive as AFT members. This includes discounts on traveling, help with student loans, and unique supplemental insurance plans.
