“Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do.”  -John Wooden

Quotes like this one can land in your inbox on a weekly basis, along with a short motivational message. To get yourself some regular inspiration, simply sign up for the free "Thought of the Day" email on the Employee Assistance Program webpage.

We can't mention the Thought of the Day here without putting in a good word for the Employee Assistance Program itself. We consistently hear that the EAP counselors are thoughtful, wise, and helpful. And the SHARE organizing staff knows from personal experience that the EAP staff offers important support and guidance, regarding both workplace and personal issues, for employees of the UMass community.

NO Rep Vote On May 20


This year, there will be no vote for Union Reps. The vote has been cancelled. Congratulations to all of our new and returning SHARE Reps!

This message is an update from the letter that we previously sent to you at your home. There are now enough spots for all of the candidates because a nominee has since declined the nomination. Every position either had just the right number of candidates, or fewer. Our Elections Code says that all candidates are therefore considered elected.

Thank you very much to those who nominated themselves or a co-worker to help keep our union strong.

A full list of Reps and Executive Board members is coming soon. . . .
