Northwest State Correctional Facility


Location: Northwest State Correctional Facility – Outside Under the VSEA Tent (If the weather is poor, we will be in your breakroom)

Each and every one of you have worked incredibly hard during this pandemic, and you have shown an incredible determination to serve your state in the face of severe difficulties. Now your union wants to show our appreciation for your service, and for your membership.

Please join us outside under our VSEA tent, we will have food, VSEA shirts, and other giveaways. You will also have the opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about issues you are facing in your facility, the ongoing pension summer study committee, contract negotiations, and the effort by a small out-of-state group to weaken and divide our members.

Executive Director Steve Howard will be there, as well as your Union Organizer David Oppenheimer, and your Union Rep Mike O’Day. 

We will be there for third shifters the night before, on August 4th, then our main event will be held on August 5th from 10:00 AM to the end of your 2 PM shift change.

If you are not currently a member, this event is an excellent opportunity to join. You can also join online on Please stop by and talk to us about why it’s so important to join your union. New members, and members who bring new members, will get a special VSEA gift!

If you are not working on August 5th, or if you cannot make the event for any reason, please email me at I will make sure we leave something for you to show our appreciation. If you work at Probation and Parole you are also welcome at this event!

Again, thank you all for your hard work and dedication to our state. We look forward to seeing you on August 5th!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
