Welcome to our new website. Please use this site to stay informed about all union matters. I would like to remind you to refer to the contract for solutions to any problems you encounter. If you can't find a solution, please ask your building representative for assistance.
Members of the Executive Council have been working very hard updating our GFT Constitution, and the new one should be completed by the end of the year. Also, 2018-2019 will be that last year of our current contract, and we will be negotiating a new one. Your hard work and dedication are truly appreciated.
