Important info about your local

Local 656 is determined to keep our membership informed.

We welcome our members to become involved in any way. Contact your steward if you have any questions or concerns.

The membership of our local meets at least once a year at a
General Membership Meeting. During these meetings, members elect our stewards and from these stewards, officers are elected (President, Chief Steward, secretary, treasurer, etc.). These officers and stewards make up the Local Executice Committee (LEC). They manage the every day affairs of the local, give direction on how the local should be run and how the local spends your union dues.

Once a month the
Union / College Committee (UCC), usually comprised of three officers/members from our local and three administrators of the college, meet to discuss and resolve issues and complaints that arise from our working environment.
