An Urgent Update on Fast Track from IFPTE
To All IFPTE Locals,
The House is expected to vote on the Fast Track bill this Friday. Below is IFPTE’s letter in opposition. This letter went to all House offices today.
This will be a very close vote – could go either way. We encourage all of our locals and members to reach out to your respective House members asking them to vote no on Fast Track.We will be sending around a member mobilization email later this evening as well.

ESC Local 20 Welcomes New Union Rep Melanie Curry!
We are happy to report that Melanie Curry has joined ESC as a union representative. Melanie will be taking over Susan Greenwood’s PG&E assignment as well as Kaiser facilities in Fresno. Some of you may know Melanie’s name, as she is joining the ESC staff after more than 30 years of working for PG&E in Labor Relations. Melanie has vast experience with the Company and our contract, and will be a strong advocate for our members. She well understands that the best thing about PG&E or Kaiser is its workforce, and has chosen to come to ESC to defend the contract rights and fair and respectful treatment of our membership. Welcome, Melanie!
