PSE Needs You
Are you interested in opportunities to get involved in your union? PSE encourages member involvement through voluntary service on various state committees.
Serving on a state committee is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. If you are selected to serve, you must be able to attend scheduled meetings, have access to a computer with internet, and provide PSE with an email address that you check frequently.
Convention2017_4Most committee meetings are scheduled on a Saturday to reduce conflict with members’ work schedules, but will require you to travel. Depending on distance, PSE will provide overnight lodging.
PSE reimburses for mileage associated with using your personal vehicle as well as meals or other expenses incurred that are related to serving on a state committee (Policy 3001B).
