President Todd Collins

Greetings Brothers and Sisters.

Since the last issue of the Labor News things have certainly changed. The words “COVID” and “Pandemic” seem to dominate our everyday discussions and are part of the new “Normal”. Elections are less than 2 months away and are, most certainly, dominating the airwaves. Every election we always hear “This is the most important election in our lifetime”. As this is always true it definitely has many different implications this year. As Americans we have a choice. A choice to decide how our country moves forward or falls behind. How the United States is viewed in the global landscape. Whether we can still be that beacon of light in the International community or a dying symbol of freedom that once was an example for the entire world to see. As a Union we have always been a part of Middle class America. Any party or candidate that threatens that way of life is no friend of Labor. Please exercise your right to vote no matter the party. On the Local front we are currently still not having membership meetings due to the Governors Executive order. Hopefully we can start soon.  Some of our Units have started or will be starting contract negotiations. These are challenging times and those Units are finding that the current climate is not the most ideal. With the Local Elections behind us and a new chapter beginning at the Local I just wanted to take this opportunity to Thank the entire membership for giving me the opportunity to be YOUR President. Please know that I consider this an honor and do not take that responsibility lightly.

"Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you."    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg
