Local 100 Arkansas Welcomes New Members PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 24 November 2012 23:22

These are the new faces of some of our newest members. These members are from the Warren Human Development Center where we added 8 new members. Also, Alexander Juvenile Center where we added two new members and added 5 from the Conway Human Development Center. We would also like to thank all the members of Local 100 Arkansas for their help and support during the Presidential election. So many of our members in Arkansas got out and made sure that they made phone calls and transported voters to the poles, so thank you for your hard work.   

We also want to thank Freda Holster from Dallas County DHS, who won a grievance after being suspended for five days. Not only were we able to get the suspension overturned, but she received five days of back pay. Local 100 has also been involved with talks with DHS administrators on various topics including pay raises, work loads performance evaluations and working environments  So, we look forward to getting back to meetings in December to get some of these topics resolved. Until next time, we will keep moving and keep growing.

Diversity Equals Success

University of Texas vs. Fisher

before the U.S. Supreme Court

October 17, 2012

Field Director of Local 100 United Labor Unions, Orell Fitzsimmons and his wife Judy Graves of the Communication Workers of America spoke on the front steps of the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday October 17, 2012 at a press conference held by The Leadership Conference for Civil and Human Rights, concerning a case being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, about affirmative action as it relates to college admissions.

In 2008 a student , Ms. Fisher, sued the University of Texas because her application to attend was rejected due to a number of reason including race. UT has an admission policy that allows less achieving minority students to attend in an attempt to produce a more diverse student body. Ms. Fisher argued she was discriminated against because she was white.

Orell stated, " We are here today to let the Supreme Court know we have a long history in Texas concerning discrimination, may it be voting rights or education. UT has tried to make a change in that history. Our belief in the importance of diverse learning environments is not just pie in the sky, we have seen the benefits of young people of many nationalities and ethnic groups learning togther. As PTA volunteers, we experienced up close how diverse groups of kids work and play together making hot air balloons, playing chess and many other activities. I believe we just don't learn as much or as well when we are surrounded by people just like ourselves. Diversity doesn't just happen in Texas, the Supreme Court needs to reaffirm the University of Texas' right to foster diversity."

Should any members have children that wish to attend any university in Texas, Louisiana or Arkansas feel free to contact our office to allow us to help with the process.
