With money from a WEAC grant, WEAC Region 6 has launched the Fast $50 Recruitment Incentive project to reward Region 6 members who sign up colleagues to join the union.
Research and experience show that potential union members are much more likely to join if they are approached face-to-face by someone they work with. Many teachers who do not belong to the union say that they have never been asked to join.
From now until February 29, 2016, any Region 6 member who signs up a new Region 6 member will win $50 for every new recruit. The project’s guidelines and compensation claim form are available on the Region 6 website.
The union gains strength with each new member who joins. This project comes as the result of a successful grant proposal that Region 6 leaders and staff submitted to complement ongoing membership organizing and recruitment efforts.
If you have questions, call the WEAC Region 6 office at 1-800-397-2287 and say you need more information about the Fast $50 Recruitment Incentive project.
