Bridge Builder – I’ve been able to widen our local’s circle of influence among members by utilizing social capital engendered through authenticity and sincerity of purpose.
Organizing and mobilizing chapter members to fight against and beating back a negative change management wanted to make in our workplace. When management offered a settled they said “We heard you loud and clear”. Boom!!!
I would like to grow my knowledge of the labor movement from a historical perspective so that I may help to educate new members, specifically millennials who are largely unaware of the importance of the labor movement and its greater societal benefits on the micro and macro level. Historical knowledge will help to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past and help our local to return to/ or remain member driven.
