As part of the plan to better communicate with you, members of Local 1070, the Officers and Executive Board members have created a chapter meeting schedule for 2015 under the "Calendar" tab to the left. We hope in providing this schedule, it will allow you to save these dates in your personal calendars and attend these informative meetings. These chapter meetings will give you a forum to discuss work related issues with your Local 1070 brothers and sisters who work in the same/similar titles throughout New York City. Hope to see you at the meetings!
