Have You Visited the Website Lately? Thanks to your feedback on our 2024 Member Survey, we’ve made some upgrades to the CASE Website that we hope make it easier for Members to navigate and find what they need. If you haven’t visited lately, the CASE Website is your one-stop-shop for things like the CASE Files archives, the current MOU, explainers on leave and disability benefits, member benefits and discounts, the MOU suggestion box, and more!
