It's back! Our very successful program, now bolstered by a $75,000 budget that we negotiated in our contract, will run from June 6 to August 2. Course registration will open on May 15, through the Training Management System (TMS).
Come join us and your colleagues on May 24 from 9-11am as we kick off the program for 2017. The event will take place at the TAC building at 300 Cedar Street in the Medical School. Refreshments start at 8am. If you'd like to attend, please RSVP here.

Local 34 Yale Press Committee Member Lisa Scecina was honored for over 25 years of service.
On May 3, our colleagues with over 25 years at Yale gathered for the annual Long Service Awards. Many of our sisters and brothers in Local 34 and Local 35 were there to be honored for their service to the university.
Our friends in Local 33 were set up outside the event to congratulate the honorees and hand out potted marigolds to show solidarity with those fasting only a couple hundred feet away.
