Policy: Prohibition on Unauthorized Recordings or Live-Streaming
In order to encourage open communication, free exchange of ideas, an atmosphere of trust, and to protect the privacy interests of MSEA members and guests, MSEA-SEIU Local 1989 hereby prohibits the unauthorized audio or video recording or live-streaming of any non-public events sponsored or hosted by MSEA and related organizations, including but not limited to MSEA Board meetings, the MSEA Annual Meeting, Committee meetings, Chapter Meetings, bargaining team meetings and bargaining sessions, grievance committee meetings, VEBA Board meetings, and PASER events.
