BSIP Project Kicks Off - 13 New Members Hired!
With the BSIP getting into high gear, a wave of new employees are coming on board to backfill project positions, and fill other vacancies. 13 new Bargaining Unit employees have been hired in the last 60 days! Shop Stewards are scurrying about, getting all the new employees signed up with the Union.

New Union Members who have signed up this month include: Jayne McCartney, Purchasing Analyst with Purchasing; David Nelson, ADSA with Customer Service; Vladimir Schwab, CST with Central IS; Dale Stubbart, ADSA with Customer Service; Debra Sims, CSA with General Services Fleet; Nina Oliver-Jones, ADSA with General Services; William O'Neil, CST with T&D Planning, Paul Vincent, CST with Public Works; John Hargis ADSA with the BSIP; and welcome back to Paul Federighi, Principal Tech CSP of BSIP, who has recently returned from working at AT&T Wireless, to lead the SAP BASIS Team.

SAP Training Complete, On to Configuration!

Local 20 members Cliff Haydon, Jolene Cassal, Jack Barlow, Manuela Pinckney, John Shell, Bob Saucier, Debi Blann, and Pelli Zhang-Way attend SAP training in the old Costco Building. The makeshift classrooms were utilized due to a shortage of computer training facilities at TPU and TMB locations. Over 150 employees were trained for three weeks at the temporary facility.

Mayor Baarsma is presented with a gift from TUI CEO Ballu Khan, and representatives from a New Zealand native dance troupe.

The BSIP formally kicked off the project on July 15th, with a team building exercise at the Point Defiance Zoo, followed by a multi-cultural event at the Tacoma Dome, involving tribal dancers from New Zealand, home of TUI's CEO, Ballu Khan.

BSIP Project Team members attend team building sessions at Point Defiance Park.

The project team members will attend a four week training course in SAP software, and then move to the official project headquarters at the Carlton Center, at 15th & Broadway.

Quote of the day: "For a worker to refuse to belong to a union is not to exercise a democratic freedom. It is to accept benefits that others have worked for without contributing to the costs. Democracy flourishes only when freedom is accompanied by responsibility." (Australian Bank Employees Union).
