Baltimore County Public Employees had an opportunity to meet and greet the leadership of the two local unions affiliated with AFT-Maryland, which represent them. Baltimore County Federation of Public Employees (BCFPE) and the Baltimore County Federation of Public Health Nurses (BCFPHN) executive boards welcomed and engaged members at the Drumcastle Center in Towson, MD.
Members had an opportunity to express both appreciation and concerns to their unions. Some asked about tuition reimbursement opportunities in the contract as well as work conditions and requirements made of them by the county.
BCFPE member and Area IV Vice President, Valentina Washington, was out talking to members and supporting the efforts of her union. Valentina is a semi-finalist for AFT Public Employees' Everyday Hero award. If you want to vote for Valentina click here (insert link to voting).
