50-50 Campaign

In an effort to recruit more members (and to counter ALEC legislation that tries to decertify unions with less than 50% membership), we are starting our 50-50 campaign. Any UNF-UFF member who recruits a new member to the chapter will get a $50 gift card. In addition, the new member will also receive a $50 gift card.
