In order to further improve the lines of communication and to respond to the concerns between Local 548 and you our members, I have established a Local 548 Briefing. This Local 548 Briefing will bring you the latest news and developments within Bay Pines and provide you with the current status of issues this Local and National AFGE is currently addressing. I believe that this Local 548 Briefing will greatly enhance the way in which we communicate and the way in which we share new information, keeping you better informed.
