Groups are a way to organize your members that perhaps don’t share a bargaining unit. Groups each have their own directories, events, feeds, and news stories that are only shared by members of that group. You can also send push notifications to groups.

Groups can be union-wide or associated with a specific bargaining unit. Groups can also be made public so that your membership can join groups that they belong to on their own.
