The holidays are here once again and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. This has been an interesting year for our local. We have had some great moments like ratifying three agreements in a single week, a new record for our local. Throughout the year though we have also faced many challenges, like the constant attacks on our union. However, throughout 2018 no matter the attacks or the victories, our members have stuck together and made our union stronger. I hope that you enjoy your holidays and the time with your friends and family.
