"Why doesn't SPSE-UPTE produce a comprehensive summary of their contributions to Lab employees including non-members, instead of allowing themselves to be marginalized, stigmatized, and deemed obsolete and irrelevant?"
Lab Senior Management may publicly claim to welcome SPSE-UPTE involvement in one forum or another, but privately I suspect SPSE-UPTE is viewed as problematic, being impediments to Management and Staff Relations by challenging departures from policies (employment practices) and eroding employment conditions.
By not reminding lab employees of their accomplishments in a manner that demonstrates broad relevance to all lab employees, SPSE-UPTE open themselves up to be characterized as on the fringe, with little modern day relevance in the workplace or only of value to a small subset of employees. If they want to grow as an organization, they need to provide clear and concise unequivocal examples of their value added and relevance over the last ~10 years to a wide pool of lab employees.
