Fights worth fighting…

Most of our members are unaware as to what we do over here at the union.  Any given day you will find us in our office working to resolve whatever issue has jumped up in the last 24 hours.  Over the last few weeks, we have been very vocal over a variety of issues that affect all of our members. I know that most do not watch the evening news and do not get to see my interviews or press conferences, but I do plenty of them.  If I cannot do it, I have Ken, Ray, or Tim handle it, because it is important to get our message out there to the community.
