Hello! I have worked for TWU Local 555 for 15 years as of Monday, December 17th. As Office Administrator, my most important job is the handling and processing of all grievance-related information and documentation, incoming or outgoing. My bulging filing cabinet and my boardroom calendar can attest to that!! I am also responsible for most of the regular day-to-day tasks that every office has, that most people don’t really even think about, such as mail or office supplies. It doesn’t sound like a lot of responsibility in a few short sentences, but believe me - with the amount of paperwork that crosses my desk daily, we could rebuild the rainforests! My fellow office mate and I are cross-trained on almost all of each others’ duties, so there is a lot of passing back and forth of tasks, depending on who has more time.
I am not familiar with, nor trained on, the contract, which is not an accident, since I am not allowed to answer any contract questions per the Executive Board’s decision. I can, however, most likely tell you what Article almost anything is located in. I also know all the city codes, since I see all of them every day. (I can say the alphabet backwards pretty rapidly, too, but that isn’t job related – just an interesting fact!)
