Local 724 President Todd Collins

February 2021

Hello Brothers and Sisters. Hope all is well in this first month or so of the New Year. A New Year that turns the page on one of the worst and most challenging years in our nation’s history.  With a new year comes a new President, a new Vice-President a new congress and senate. Let’s hope that with all of the new comes new hope that our country can find a way to come together and use our differences to unite us instead of dividing us even farther. Membership meetings are still cancelled until April for now. My hope is that beginning in May that we can start them again. On the Local front a member from our Dakkotta Unit passed away recently. Ken Dennings spent 8 years with his brothers and sisters at Dakkotta. He was a “HUGE” Michigan State fan. His wife and four daughters are in our prayers. Ken was a true Union guy who took care of everyone. You will be missed brother. Rest in Peace.  Our Dakkotta, Woodbridge, Delta Dental and Huntsman Units will, by the time you read this, be in contract negotiations. I have faith that the Bargaining teams at each of those units will fight to bring a contract that is worthy of the membership that we represent. Our first food drive at our Local was a huge success. With help from Dean Poggiali we were able to organize an event that saw almost 200 food boxes go out to the community. Special thanks to Joyce Norwood from our RSDC Unit for organizing the event. Also thanks to all of the volunteers form our units and our families that helped. I am very proud of what we were able to do to help the community. May we all remember that in the words of Walter Reuther “We are our Brothers and Sisters keeper”. Which means that we take care of each other, look out for each other, and we will get the same back in return.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools”   Martin Luther King Jr.
