Stacy Spexet Joins Local 1189 Staff
Please join us in welcoming Stacy Spexet to the Local Union Staff. Stacy brings her enthusiam and many years of experience to our Duluth Office. Stacy summarized her Union history, "I have been a health care worker since 1997 working as a Clinical Assistant for what is now Essentia Health. I had an opportunity to be involved in organizing our clinic in 1999 and with encouragement of a fellow coworker that saw potential I became more and more active. I have been a steward, board member and negotiated numerous contracts before becoming a member of UFCW 1189." After a few months of orientation and training, Stacy will be the assigned Union Representative for our members in our Northern worksites. Stacy summarized the motivation behind her work, "I became involved and continue the fight because there is no greater equalizer when it comes to employee rights than being Union. Want equal pay for equal work? Join a union. Want unlimited ways in which you can better yourself? Join a union. Want wages and benefits that can better your way of life? Join a union."
