Time to elect our union’s delegates to the AFT-OR convention. You may wondering where your ballot is since we’ve typically done this election via USPS mail…this year we decided to go old school, holding a polling station ballot box election. In order to vote you’ll need to stop by the GTFF office and cast your vote. You have a four day window, so no “that day is bad for me” excuses! The polls will be open Monday, February 21, through Thursday, February 24, from 9AM to 5 PM. The election closes at 5 PM, Thursday, February 24.

Fellow members of the GTFF,
I thought I’d try to do something somewhat unique and compose a brief “State of the GTFF” message.
I’d like to acknowledge, and thank, all the new members of the GTFF for joining the union and attending the GMM (it was our largest turnout ever)! I’d like to also applaud the continued membership of returning GTFs and especially those members who take the time to be leaders in our union. These leaders are the department stewards, board members, caucus leaders, volunteers, and those who get involved and speak up about our union’s direction and affairs. It’s the enthusiasm of our membership which makes the GTFF a unique and active organization, enabling us to continue to be a strong and representative union.
