6 am Rally was a success, about 20 people showed and good media coverage.
Ac Rep – Just had our Regional Health and Safety conference it was well attended. Was way too short. Needs to be a week. Especially talking about Mental Health.
Ideas around Phoenix
Rallies, after work rallies
Frustrating to get people out.
Chris G. suggested that we need to bleed the Fed Government cause getting in their face isn’t working. Martha stated that the only way to do that is to start filing for every pay discrepancy.
Discussion on Union History
We have to start Lobbying Ralph Goodale.
Talking about different thing we could do and pitch it to National

Suggestion of another rally, the committee does not feel it is affective because it is too cold to dark etc.
