CELEBRATING OUR MEMBERS with Lifetime Member Martin Lee

(April 7, 2021) Please meet NWSEO Lifetime Member, Martin Lee of Duluth, MN.  Mr. Lee, who retired from WFO Duluth after over 41 years of service, reflects on his time as an active member of NWSEO. He has been a NWSEO member since 1988.

Why did you join NWSEO?

It is an important investment in our careers!  I learned early in my career that NWSEO leaders work hard to respond to their members’ questions with regards to collective bargaining, work schedules and supporting our mission at the NWS.  I joined NWSEO to be a part of their effort and support my fellow colleagues.  They were appreciative and we were a great team.

The NWSEO congratulates Mr. Lee on his retirement and his outstanding contribution, efforts, and incredible support of NWSEO.  He is an excellent example of how dedication to serving others can enhance your career.

Release for NWS Employees

New CBA - It's Official!

We are happy to announce our new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between NWS and NWSEO has been approved through the Agency Head Review! We are already developing communications to walk you through the new CBA and answer your questions so please look for emails and NWS Insider articles in the weeks ahead. We will also give a brief opener at the March 25 All Hands webcast.
On Friday, March 5, prior to sending forward for Agency Head Review, all parties virtually signed simultaneously. It was a momentous way to end the week and we dressed for the occasion.
It is worth repeating, our joint goal in implementing this new CBA is to ensure that we honor, protect and maintain the highly skilled and dedicated NWS workforce, which is the key to our collective success. Proudly and together we are building a weather-ready nation.
