Local 1036 has established multiple committees to enhance democratic input and participation from membership. Committees have been formed from volunteers gathered at shop stewards training, worksite meetings, and direct contact with the Local. Committees are appointed by the Executive Board annually.
We are always looking for more volunteers!
If you are interested in joining a committee, please contact the Local at (609) 530-0060.
