Vice-President's Report

1st.. Quarter Report of 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I hope every member is having a great spring. The Texas State Executive Board had our Executive Board meeting on January 25, 2019 to discuss the 2019 agenda. We will continue to visit branches to educate all our letter carriers on our issues, see you all soon.

The midterm elections in November brought new congressional representatives to Washington, DC. The state attended a lobbying trip to Washington on February 2019, along with some dedicated members who are not LCCLs, to educate the new members about letter carrier issues. It is important to make sure we can influence the new members to support letter carrier. Well I believe all members that attended Washington to lobby did an excellent job, so I would love to thank all members that participated in Washington. THANK YOU!

Again, a big thank you to all the members that have signed up to the Letter Carrier Political Fund since 2018. You believed in how important your job is and what it provides you to take care of your family. I will ask you to continue your valiant effort to help us spread the word to all the rest of your union brothers and sisters to do the same by signing up as well.

Our national President Rolando cannot protect our jobs by himself, that is why we all must continue to stand together and help our national union by signing up more members to the LCPF. Together we can help our President fight for our jobs like the letter carriers did with the 1970 strike. Those noble, dedicated workers fought for our bargaining rights and all our benefits we currently have today. Letter Carriers united and did it then, so we can unite and fight for our issues now.

Leadership starts from the top. I myself will continue helping the state earn the respect it deserves along with the state board members. We will continue to work more efficiently, smarter, and harder to unite and strengthen our legislative effort in Texas. The state will also be working with branch presidents on educating all members on how important it is to become a LCPF member.
Save the date, June 26th-28th. Marvin Ruyle, along with Denton Branch are putting on a great state convention. See you all then. God Bless you all.
