Dear Sisters and Brothers:
After much thought, I have decided not to seek reelection next June as President of our union.
I informed the Executive Board at our meeting today. I am confident that our Executive Board can support a strong candidate but this is not a campaign note and that decision is up to you.
Thank you to all of our Members who attended last night's General Membership Meeting. The meeting was well attended, lively and respectful. Much information was discussed and an overview of our union at the national and Local level was provided.
Happy Labor Day! As this Labor Day approaches, the Local 1103 Executive Board wishes you a safe and happy Labor Day. We encourage you to think about what Labor Day really means, and to celebrate all the sacrifices that have been made by men and women of labor past. It is also a time to be proud of what each of you have given up for our own collective cause.
Today, August 15, 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of Gerry Horgan. Gerry was a member of Local 1103 and was killed on the picket line during the 1989 strike. Please join us at the annual ceremony at 12:00 p.m.
