After consideration of your mission and the outstanding efforts of the executive board to manage the services you provide within a budget that has been decreasing over the years, I will be pleased to continue working with you. However, there will be no charge.
I strongly believe in the effectiveness of collective bargaining through labor unions. Labor unions are what negotiated the upgrading of conditions in thousands of jobs to meet standards of decency and to enable workers to make a fair wage. Without labor unions, we would still have workers working too many days a week, too many hours a day and at wages that were simply unconscionable.
At the executive board meeting I attended, I was so impressed with the efforts of the executive board to find ways to cut costs. E board members were willing to not only find creative ways to reduce travel expenses, but they were willing to forego half of the LWOP and per diem to help the union. Being willing to give up half of LWOP and per diem in a time in life when most people are finding money too scarce and expenses overwhelming speaks volumes to their dedication to DMAL and their desire to help it continue to thrive.
With focus on making ends meet while providing for important things like member appreciation, facilities maintenance, etc. I also want to make a contribution to your financial well-being. My parliamentarian services will be donated. It is too important that your budget be available for the many urgent needs of the DMAL.
It will be my pleasure to help you with donated parliamentarian services whenever you see the need.
