Mitchell to Leave VSEA

Nice piece on what VSEA Executive Director Mark Mitchell was able to accomplish (with VSEA members!) in his time with the union. This paragraph really stands out:

"Over the course of his two and a half year tenure, Mitchell has taken the union from a service organization in which the staff managed relationships with the Legislature and the governor’s office to a member-led union that gives rank and file workers more say in how the union works with the administration and lobbies at the Statehouse. The idea was to empower union members to become involved in union drives and issues that have an impact on their day to day work."
