In 2009, our union adopted a set of recommendations inwhat is known as the MOVE Report (Members of VisionEmpowered). The report was presented at our historicLeadership Summit and has been our road map ever since.And so, in this 2010 Annual Report,
Journey to Justice
, wereect on the recent steps we’ve taken, the paths that havebeen created, as well as the curves and obstacles we’veovercome as we continue our work to achieve all of the goalsof the MOVE Report.In our lives and as workers, we have arrived to where we arein different ways – some by a situation that occurred withinour families, others by seeking new work and opportunity.We’ve come by foot, by bus, by car, andsometimes packing no more than sheerwill and determination.Reaching a sense of justice is notsomething we can do overnight, nor isit isolated to a handful of members andstaff to carry out. To truly improve thelives of our members, their families, andour communities requires that we make the roadby walking…together.Join us as we review this past year and as we prepare for whatlies ahead.
