COMMITTEE REPORTS: (1)  Secretary’s Report – When Brownfield merged with Branch 2589 we gained three full time regular carriers, one PTF, one CCA and nine retirees. We now have 23 associate members. We have 153 fulltime regular carriers, 1 PTR, 3 PTF’s, 35 CCA’s and 9 members in other crafts for a total of 201 active members. We have 128 retired letters carriers, 15 retired Life Members, 1 retired PTF and 12 retired members of other crafts for a total of 156 retired members.  Total membership is 380 as of pay period 11/2015.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: (1) Warrants, Letterhead, Envelopes, and Receipts – Last month we had a motion to purchase Warrants, Letterhead, and Envelopes, not to exceed $850.00.  C. Cooley reported that he called five places to get bids on the printing.  Only the place in Oklahoma called him back.  We need to order Receipts, also, and they had not been mentioned before.  It is more economical to order at least 1000 warrants, letterhead and envelopes. That, plus 600 receipts will be $1418.00 plus tax.  T. Chrestman moved to order 1000 each envelopes, letterhead, and warrants and 600 receipts not to exceed a cost of $1,600.00.  Motion seconded by M. Kuss. Motion carried.

(3) June Pay Checks – Pay checks will not be handed out tonight.  If they are signed by Monday, Craig will take them to the Convention and hand them out there.  If not, they will be mailed to you. 

FOR THE GOOD OF THE ASSOCIATION: (1) Condolences – Our sympathy goes out to the families of Brother Winston Jerden who passed away on March 13, 2015 and Brother Terry G. Flowers who passed away May 17, 2015. (2) J. Ladd asked about D. McCarty’s route at Monterey.  She is working at Singer and has not carried the route in a long time. M. Links will check on that. (3)  Health Benefits for CCA’s – Fernando has information handouts for CCA’s about the Health Benefit Plan. (4) COLCPE – Recently a retiree contacted Fernando because his name was not appearing on the COLCPE Contribution List. They discovered there was no deduction for COLCPE contribution being taken out of his annuity check.  So he asked for information on how to do that.  There seems to be something wrong when a retiree is upset because he is not donating to COLCPE, and is trying to find out what to do about it, and, active carriers are not interested in donating.  If you are an active carrier, you need to be donating to COLCPE.  It is only $5.00 per pay period.  Thank you to all carriers, both active and retired, who donate to COLCPE. (5)  Work Night – We will not have a work night next week.  (6) Financial Secretary’s Report – Financial Secretary’s Report is published in the Newsletter.  B.
