Local 223 UWUA Updates Communications

Newly Updated Website and New Public Facebook Page

Local 223 UWUA recently launched an updated website at WWW.LOCAL223UWUA.ORG. The website is part of an effort to bring a new, more modern look and feel to Local 223’s digital presence and to improve communication with our members.

The website includes an –
*  About section including our mission and the history of the Local
*  Member Resources such as Healthy Living, safety and diversity information
*  News (Union Times and the Annunciator)
*  Events/Calendar
*  Retirees
*  Account page where members need to register on the site to gain access to confidential information like the Local 223 contract, which is no longer accessible on the public page.

The site has a responsive theme, which improves viewing for members who look at the site from a mobile device or tablet.

It also integrates Local 223’s new public facing page on Facebook at HTTPS://WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/UWUA.LOCAL.223/. Please “like” our new public FACEBOOK PAGE to follow us so you can share news with your friends and neighbors about the great things we’re doing for the community.

Local 223 also has a public Facebook group for members to join for more personal interaction. Visit the group at HTTPS://WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/GROUPS/179305298788114/ to join.

We will continue to add more features to the website in the future and may expand our presence on social media in the coming year.

Updates to Text Communication

UWUA Local 223’s texting system has changed due to new laws that were recently implemented. A new “Long Code,” 8775800223, was issued to replace the previous “Short Code.” If you were previously registered, there is no need for you to register again.

You, as a values member of Local 223, will receive Division updates, social event alerts, emails surveys and much more. Signing up is simple to do, first enter the new Long Code, 8775800223, into the top as the recipient, and second, enter your keyword from the list below into the message area. Please note that keywords have no space between numbers and letters. Then you will be prompted to answer 2 additional questions to complete your registration. Please make sure that you enter your name and a Non-Company email address, failure to do so may result in you being deleted from the list!
