10/30/2017 - After the 2018 Contract Campaign Slogan Contest was announced in the middle of August, slogans came pouring into headquarters with over 1,500 members taking action. Concern for the future, unity, respect and support for the union’s general bargaining goals were recurring themes. By the deadline, more than 2,500 entries were received, with some members entering multiple suggestions.
Around 1,300 All-Craft Conference (ACC) attendees got a chance to cast a ballot for their favorite pick of the five “finalist” slogans – determined by the National Executive Board. President Dimondstein is pleased to announce the winning slogan is “Fighting Today for a Better Tomorrow.” It was submitted by Alfonso McFarlin, Jr., a member of the Houston Area Local Retiree Chapter.
