I’ve been in the St. Louis Gateway District Area Local APWU since 1990. I started as a MVS driver, became a Motor Vehicle Steward in 1992, then worked as a Motor Vehicle Craft Director from 1995-2001, served as the Secretary-Treasurer from 2001-2008, as the Vice President from 2008-2010, and as the President from 2010 through the present. I operate with an open-door policy and am always happy to meet with anyone – our members are the reason I have been here for the past 27 years. So come see me down at the Union Hall, email me, or give me a call!
I joined the St. Louis DAL APWU in 1981, started as a Clerk Steward in 1982, became the Director of Research and Education in 1990, served as the Director of Industrial Relations from 2000-2010, switched back to be the Director of Research and Education again from 2010-2013, then became the Vice President in 2013. As of close of business on March 15, 2019 I became President of this Local. I pledge to represent all members to the best of my ability. I have been a dedicated member of this union for 36 years and counting, and will continue to work to benefit all members. I am available by email, phone, or at the Union Hall; come down and see me sometime.
I joined the St. Louis Gateway DAL in 2008, became a certified Steward in 2010, and was elected Secretary-Treasurer in 2013. I am always accessible to members and work hard to hold the union accountable with their funding. I was elected to communicate whatever questions the members need to know about the union finances. I always incorporate the 5 Rules to Spending Union Funds: 1. The Law 2. The Constitution and Bylaws 3. A motion passed by General Membership 4. The Executive Board of Officers, as permitted by the constitution or by the Membership. 5. The Budget as adopted by the membership. And always remember, "Difficulties mastered, are opportunities won."
