It’s been a long time since many of us have been together in person.  Please attend our WeROC Meeting of the Whole on September 7th at 111 S Wallace, Ypsilanti, 48197.  We start to gather and socialize and grab some food from 4:30-5:30 with a brief meeting while eating at 5:30.  Then we will move to having good social time and networking from 5:30-7:00.  We will have T-shirts available for purchase and several will be given away as door prizes.  I have already worn my T-Shirts to several community meetings and events.  They are a great introduction and conversation starter  for me and for WeROC.

WeROC will provide Pizza (including some gluten free and vegetarian).  Please let me know if you can bring salad, dessert or munchies/appetizers. In return for your attendance you will have a great time catching up with WeROC regulars and some new faces.  I hope to see you there.

Please let me know if you think you are coming to the 9/7 meeting so I can make sure we have enough food.  Just respond yes to this email, or call or text to my number below.

Have a fun Labor Day weekend and remember that Labor Unions have lifted and continue to lift the earning power of workers everywhere.   Great example, the U of M Graduate Employees recent success in lifting graduate employees and their families to more equitable pay.
