Message from VSEA President Aimee Towne

Good Evening VSEA Union Family,

Your VSEA Board of Trustees met this evening to discuss a sensitive issue that has the potential to impact our union. It has come to our attention that the VSEA Corrections unit is being actively pursued for potential decertification from our union.

VSEA stands by and works to support each of our members in every unit, every day. While this news is upsetting, our union is poised to continue to provide the best service possible to all of our members and will fight any attempt of any union that works to fracture us.

In the coming weeks, VSEA will be engaging in meetings with our Corrections members to better assess the situation.

Every member should feel valued and heard, regardless of unit or worksite. Please reach out to your unit executive committees, bargaining teams, steward or Board of Trustees with any comments, questions or concerns.

We are the union, each and every one of us.

In Solidarity,

Aimee Towne

VSEA President
