TO: All I.B.E.W. Local 459 Members
FROM: Paul L. Cameron, Business Manager/Fin. Sec.
SUBJECT: New Appointment
In response to the challenges we are faced with in an ever-changing world, now is the time to make the necessary effort to secure our future if we are to remain a viable force for years to come. As a local and a labor movement as a whole, if we are reluctant to react to change, we are left behind. I am dedicated to protecting our Local Union and positioning it for whatever opportunities the future may bring.
Therefore, effective January 1, 2018, Western District Executive Board Chairman, Brother Barry Hixon has been appointed full-time Organizer for Local 459. With over 20 years’ experience working in the industry, over 16 years of serving members as a Union Officer, being on negotiating committees, and having a passion of unionism and justice at the worksite, Brother Hixon possesses the experience and traits needed for organizing in today’s environment.
Please join me in congratulating Brother Barry Hixon, wishing him the best of luck and support in his new assignment.
