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!
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”!
