It is with great pride and comradeship, that we can announce the results of our Local Union Elections.
The strength of our union is measured by our ability to vote freely. You as a union member, not only have a protected right to vote to elect your representatives, but with your vote, you strengthen each individual member's capacity to participate in the process that builds the muscle of our union.
On behalf of the Officers, Executive Board, Business Staff and myself, please accept our most heartfelt thanks to all of you who took the opportunity to exercise your ultimate responsibility to elect your union representation for the next three years. Additionally, we extend a sincere thanks to those who were nominated for union positions but were unsuccessful in their bid. All are valuable to the local union and it takes great will and determination to run for union office. Their participation in the process is the engine that drives fair and democratic elections. Let us all take a moment also to acknowledge former Business Manager Ron Bauer for his service and the sacrifices he and his family have made. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
2020 has brought many challenges not just to our local union, but to our region and this country. Much is going to be expected of us in the months and years to come. To prepare for these expectations each and every one of us must be prepared to roll up the sleeves and get to work. Thank you again for all that you do both on and off the job.
