Employee Relations has told L2019 that we cannot email you the unedited January Membership Meeting agenda because it contains an item titled “AFSCME Council 57 U.S. Presidential Endorsement Discussion”.
They claim this is a “Political Purpose” that is prohibited due to a recent revision to Procedure 453 – Technology Use and Privacy Procedure (we formally opposed the revised langauge).
As we suspected, this revised language is being used to prohibit ANY activity that MIGHT be considered “political” by Management.
The uncensored GMM agenda is available here:

Like many things in life, our website is currently going through a time of change. Now whether it is for the better or worse, only time and space will tell. We hope you appreciate that some things are worth the wait, and we definitely appreciate your patience as we pick up the pieces and put them all in their newly assigned place. If you have major concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Local Leader or Steward. Friends and colleagues are also always a good source of help.
Thank you for all you do and for making our membership worth being a part of.
