As we begin the new year, we want to provide some updates for our members and friends.

The Board of Trustees of CALMC has been restructured. The entire board can be seen by clicking the Board of Trustees tab on the left of the screen. As a result of this restructuring and filling a vacancy, we have two new trustees, one each from both labor and management.

Al Bacon, Senior Executive Vice-President of Service Employees International Union, District 1199 has joined the board as a labor trustee. Al’s labor-management experience in both the public and private sectors will be helpful to CALMC.

Our new management trustee is Peggy Barylak, the Manager of  Labor Relations and Organizational Development in Facilities, Operations, and Development at The Ohio State University. We have worked with Peggy on the FOD Labor-Management Committee, and are pleased to have her expertise on the Board.


We had previously announced a topic for our March membership meeting. However, our speaker for the meeting is changing jobs resulting in a change for our meeting. Congratulations to Nick Menedis as he begins his new job. We look forward to continuing to work with Nick.

We will have more information about our membership meeting shortly.


Last year we told you about a labor-management committee that was working to avoid layoffs by redefining their job roles and responsibilities. The committee is continuing their work by gathering information from all employees and will meet jointly with members of the other bargaining unit representing employees in their organization. We’ll keep you posted on their progress as we continue to facilitate the committee.
