20 June 2018 Important News, E-Board Shuffle

As of 20 June 2018, the E-board was forced into a bad situation which necessitated a shuffling of the E-Board members. Sarah Geddes resigned her position as Secretary Treasurer creating a void on the E-Board which had to be filled. As a result Jason Ghast resigned his position as Vice President, and was appointed by the President of our Local Lodge, to the position of Secretary Treasure, Charles Yonkers was appointed Vice President.

To Recap and Reinforce:
Charles Yonkers is now Vice President of our Local Lodge 24
Jason Ghast is now Secretary Treasurer of our Local Lodge 24

Sarah Geddes has resigned her position and is No longer of Secretary Treasurer of Local Lodge 24.

The Local Lodge 24 E-Board Gallery Page will be Updated soon to reflect this Shuffle.

April 21st Meeting, A New Shop Steward

On April 21st of the year 2018,  A New Shop Steward was sworn in as the 3rd and final Shop Steward for the Flight Line/ISO Dock branch.  This Shop Steward lives on Swing Shift, Flight Line and helps to fill out the Stewards.  Currently there are 2 Shop Stewards on Mid Shift, and now one on Swing Shift!

Three Huzzah’s!!!  

For “Chris” Nasr, as the new shop steward on Swing Shift.

Newly installed Flight Line Shop Steward, “Chris” Nasr

Chris’s full Name is Munir Christopher Nasr, but he prefers Chris, althought the Communicator thinks his “real” first name Munir is pretty cool.  Chris had been attending the Monthly Union meetings with the intent to become more actively involved, and had been inquiring about being a Shop Steward, knowing full well there was a need and an opening for a third steward.  So on April 21st Chris was asked if he was interested in becoming a Shop Steward and he volunteered for the position.  The “E-Board” appointed him on the spot and Rick Compher, our Union Business representative Swore him in immediately.

Welcome to the “Party”!
