Dear UIS United Faculty members, fans, and family:
The Labor Day weekend is upon us, and this year UIS UF has the honor of marching at the head of Springfield’s parade! I hope you’ll join me and other faculty and students to celebrate our new contract and to connect with other area labor unions. This is also a chance to thank some folks who helped us out last spring. Wear your UIS UF t-shirt or button (I’ll have extras for anyone who needs one)!
Participants assemble at the Horace Mann parking lot starting at 9 a.m. The parade starts at 10 a.m. Mayor Langfelder will be one of those taking the lead. The parade is followed by a picnic for all union members and their families at the Prairie Capital Convention Center.
If you’d like to join us, please email me at email@example.com. Hope to see you Monday!
