After six years of working at Local 802, I have decided to take another job as Organizing Director of Communications Workers Local 1034 in New Jersey. Over these years I have had the great joy of working alongside, and fighting along with, hundreds of you for decent contracts, fair resolutions to grievances and, most commonly, union organizing campaigns. Together, we have won some important – even historic – campaigns, and lost others.
Throughout my tenure at Local 802 I have learned a great deal from the membership, staff and officers of this union. I am thankful that 802 allowed me the opportunity to fight with so many of you for greater rights, benefits and protection on the job. It was always a challenge, and often a great deal of fun. Thank you.
