Once again, GFTâ€™s communication efforts won 5 awards in this yearâ€™s AFT Communications Awards Contest Class II Division (2,001 to 9,999 members)! GFT communication has evolved from a small print newsletter that was compiled by a single staffer to a larger newspaper that was hand delivered in every agency, and now various types of media in print, television, and the internet (the GFT Website, Direct Mailers, eUpdate Newsletter, The Working Family TV Show, etc.) in order to keep members informed. We will continue to improve our efforts with the latest and most convenient means of communication for our members as this is an important factor in the growth of our union.
