Gary Sieger - President Rozema introduced Gary Seiger, President of the Shore Club and member of Alliance I who informed us that the employees there are trying to form a local union for all condos. They contacted their attorney and found out they couldn't do a thing about it. However, they did refer them to a union specialist to get his input. If this union should become successful, it would change every chain of command in any condo and be very difficult to handle.
