"Nassau COBA Monthly Podcast" January 2021 Edition
Dear COBA Members/Retirees;
We are happy to provide you with the return of "Nassau COBA Monthly", the Union's Podcast designed to keep our Members updated and informed on important issues affecting us as Correction Officers in Nassau County.
With so much going on over the last couple of months we let this method of communication lapse a little, but moving onward and upward we plan to bring you this important medium on a regular monthly basis to keep you up to date on all issues affecting your employment and your Union.
We also plan to advance into video podcasts, where we'll invite guests into our world to provide insight into numerous topics from politics to legal issues, legislation and contractual rights, healthcare and pensions as well as whatever else we think will benefit us all as Correction Officers. We also want input from you, COBA Members and Retirees on what topics you would like to see addressed to that we can provide real answers and keep away rumors and speculation.
Just a note:
We recently hired a new web designer. This company also provides us with a giant leap forward in record keeping and data recall capabilities by helping us design and implement a digitally encrypted Member Database.
This is all under construction at this time but due to current COVID restrictions we have not allowed vendors into the Union office, instead doing many things via Zoom Mtgs etc. This created a little issue with the audio for the attached Podcast. Its a little more muffled than usual because it was recorded over the internet via Zoom. This will be corrected next month when we will have much better recording equipment available from the vendor.
This podcast contains a lot of information as we did a review of your Union's actions for the year 2020, as well as a legal and legislative update.
I urge you all to take the time to sit back and listen at your leisure, as we keep you updated on all things related to Nassau COBA.
