New Hampshire’s Emerging Workforce, a new ad hoc SEA committee, has been busy! On October 1, several SEA NHEW members presented the group at the first ever State Employee Appreciation Day. This was part of an outreach effort to broaden the committee’s scope and reach. For those who don’t know, NHEW was formed in 2013 as part of a grassroots effort to involve newer and younger members in the life of the union. Since then, the group has held monthly meetings, social and educational events, and taken an active role in legislative and political advocacy efforts.
On October 8, NHEW held its second annual educational event, highlighting the structure of the SEA as an organization. Members from six state agencies and Plymouth State University took part in a mock bargaining exercise and learned about the various ways to get involved in the union through service on any number of committees; becoming a steward, chapter officer, councilor, or worksite leader; or taking advantage of the numerous benefits & discounts available to SEA members.
NHEW will be holding its next educational event on Jan. 28. Stay tuned for details.
