The year 2018 is off to a very interesting start.  The political landscape changes almost daily, but rest assured the relentless attacks on the Union Worker will remain the same. My thoughts on fighting back are that we need to build, strengthen and energize all of our local Unions by way of the rank and file member.
With so many millennials entering the work force, I think it is more important than ever for Union leadership to focus on engaging and embracing our young workers. Creating avenues and opportunities for young workers to serve begins with a true desire to identify and invest time and resources in them. 
We have all recently seen and heard the power and the voices of our young people, which were heard around the world, as they stood in solidarity against a lack of gun control in this country.  Those same youngsters will be what we call our “Young Workers”, entering the work force and being asked to join a Union and take up the fight as a Union member.  They will be tasked to affect change while protecting the gains of the great Union leaders of our past.
Young Workers are the future and I myself will be committed, not only to the current vitality of our Unions, but also to those young workers who need to be identified and equipped with the leadership skills
now, rather than later to protect the future of the middle class and to carry the torch into their future.
