hey everyone...
i thought the first rally was great thanks for all who came out to fight the good fight.

i was wondering if we have lots of t-shirts left over and signs...well lets do it again.
the loud wheel gets the grease...

can we set something up for next thursday or friday evening...maybe 6pm or 7pm...
maybe start contacting some of the part timers...and some alumni?

the board walk has been pretty crowded at night...maybe a good opportunity to get our voices heard?

any input would be nice to hear...

Has there been any feedback on the last Rally? Any contact from GOER on where things stand? Any proposals being presented?

Another idea would be to start collecting data on neighboring municipalities on their contracts.

What kind of contracts do the other lifeguards from Long Island have?

Town of Oyster Bay TOBAY?

City of Long Beach?

Gilgo or Town of Babylon?

Town of Hempstead?

City of NY in Rockaway?

Riis Park and Sunken Forest or the Federal Lifeguards?

Where do WE stand in the grand sceme of Long Island oceangoing lifeguards in regard toward pay scale and working conditions?

Another idea would be to get the numbers of lifeguards in these various municipalities?

How many guards protect Town of Hempstead and TOBAY and how many patrons visit those beaches?

SUMMER is in full swing and while I know everyone is very busy doing races and parties and working these crazy HEAT WAVE beach conditions we are facing.......record #'s of rescues and plenty of drownings throughout the Long Island beaches......NOW is the time to start gathering the IMPORTANT Data on contracts and pay scales to present when we start looking to put together OUR own future contract through NYSUT UUP.

Has anyone in our local GROUP gone through those famed "ROY LESTER" papers? The boxes and boxes of UNION records going back to the 1970's that our previous UNION kept in ROY LESTERS law office in Garden City and ROY so jealouslly guarded?

Maybe we can glean some past practice and former contracts we HAD in the past?
