As of October 15, 2015, we have 664 Members. Remember there are benefits to being a member of SOSCA. Only SOSCA members can apply for a SOSCA book scholarship. Only SOSCA members can vote for Board Members. SOSCA is in charge of the negotiations each year for the classified staff, and only SOSCA members can vote! With a membership this size we can accomplish many things, but we need to have participation from you, the membership! You might ask yourself, “how could I make a difference?” You can come to the general meetings. You can check our website regularly to see what’s new. You could even become a site representative. (Representatives attend the board meetings every other month and bring back important information to their departments/site.) Send in requests for the nomination committee–it’s never too early! Every item that goes to negotiations comes from the membership (if you don’t let us know what you want, we can’t negotiate for it!) Membership is only $2* per month for ten months and is payroll deductible. (*Increase from $1 to $2 takes effect January 1, 2016)
