JPE Update 08/01/18


JPE Members,

It has been brought to the Union Executive Board's attention that there is much speculation, rumor, and concern regarding President Roda's resignation from the Union Executive Board.  As previously communicated to you, President Roda resigned for personal reasons.  President Roda's personal reasons are his own, and we are not in a position to share them.  We want to assure you concerns over alleged misuse of funds will be taken seriously.  We have a number of safeguards in place to prevent that.  The only Union Officers that have access to your funds are the Treasurer and the Secretary.  The Treasurer presents a monthly report as to income and expenses which is reviewed by the entire Executive Board.  We also have elected Trustees that oversee our finances and conduct a review quarterly.  In addition to the Trustees' review, we have a yearly financial review done by an independent accountant.  All this information is available for your review at the Union office.  To review these documents, a member in good standing need only schedule an appointment to do so.  Further, when there is a change in officers consideration is given to conducting an audit and therefore one has been requested subsequent to President Roda's departure.

It is now time for this Union to move forward.  We have accomplished a lot over the last few years and it is my hope that we will continue to do so.  You have a very strong and capable Executive Board.  They are available to help you and address your concerns.

Our annual meeting will be held September 24, 2018 at the Union Office, 50 Columbus Boulevard, Hartford from 6-8 pm.  I encourage all members to attend.

Thank you,

Deb Kern
