Union RepresentativeUnion History: I have been a union member of OPEIU Local 12 since 1986 wherein I also filled the role of steward and negotiating committee member. I was hired by UFCW Local 1189 in September 2011. Prior to that, I worked for IAM District 143 for almost 25 years in an administrative capacity. Why do you do what you do? When I was hired in 1986 by the IAM, I had no knowledge nor experience with the labor movement. Today, I wouldn’t dream of working anywhere else but for a labor union. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to work together with staff and representatives to achieve the same goals of representation for our members and justice for working families.
