Sisters and Brothers,
I'm pleased to advise that the GROW Act was not included in the end of the year Covid/Spending legislation adopted by Congress this week and hence is dead for the 2020 legislative session.
Thank you! We would not have prevailed on Grow if had not been for your hard work and effort. Thank you to ALL -- our Joint Council Presidents, our Union Trustees, our JC Political Coordinators, our Local Union leadership, Political Coordinators, staff and our rank and file members.
This is the fifth year that we have defeated efforts to pass GROW.-- The fifth year that we have stopped an attack on the WCTPT and our members. A deep breath and sigh are appropriate but we need to stay alert. GROW proponents will assuredly be back next year and we must be ready.
Thank you again for all that you have done and all that you will do!
Happy Holidays to you, your family and members. Be safe,stay healthy.
