USW Sisters and Brothers,
Here’s this weeks job postings. Please pay attention when bidding on a job and make sure it’s the position you want . If you decide after you place a bid that you changed your mind you can remove a bid before the postings end Time. Also please only bid on jobs that you are qualified for , meaning that if you have no qualifications to be a Lab Technician then you shouldn’t bid on the position because it slows down the process of filling the job. You can place your bid with this link http://unionbid.merck.com however this needs to be done from the Merck Intranet. If you are offsite or need help with placing a bid you can place a paper bid at Gate 3 security or a Plant Committee member can make a bid for you if you are out and away during the posting timeframe.

A little rain won’t stop local 10-00086 Next Gen from helping clean up the Lansdale parks. We picked up trash and removed lantern fly egg sacks from trees. So far this morning, 70 egg sacks have been removed thanks to the park cleanup effort that will run until 5 PM. Thanks to Emelia Sohn, Anthony Previte, Mike Grabowski, Rick McFadden,Carol McFadden, Anthony Previte and Emelia Sohn for helping out!
We want to show our very own Robin Drace a very huge thank you for her role in community services . Robin has been with this Local for 30 years this coming March. She has continued to be an exceptional leader in her efforts to support our troops . She has been giving care packages to our military men and woman across seas to the tune of 3000 packages . Last night Steve Walter , retired Army Captain and one of robins first care package recipients was at our local union meeting to present her with the Jefferson Award she won through the International Steelworkers for her community service efforts. So from all of here at the local we want to say to Robin, you are an inspiration to all and from the bottom of our hearts we THANK YOU.

We walked around the mall, chatted in the food court, and had a great time listening to stories of times past. Everyone definitely enjoyed themselves! There is so much we can learn from the generations that came before us. Thank you Emelia Sohn for organizing this event and Toia Hill and Sean D Redmond for coming out to volunteer. Carol Petermann Is the chair Of our Local 10-00086 Next Generation Committee.
Its that time of year again for you to get an opportunity to purchase some of the best selling shirts ever.
On Monday, March 19th, USW Local 10-00086 Next Generation Chair Carol Petermann and Co-Chair Emelia Sohn presented a check for $2,120 to the Montgomery County Sheriff K9 Unit. The money was raised by the support of the local members at the Next Generation Committee’s Snow tubing event, held March 3rd. The money will be used to help get the K9 team safe and reliable vehicles, of which they are in great need. Next Generation is proud to support our local heroes at the Montgomery County Sheriff K9 Unit. Thank you to everyone who supported this important cause. #USWCares #USWNextGen10_00086
