"Best Teacher" During the homecare campaign I taught a first time member who never came out before the ropes about door knocking and having conversations with other people. I believe that my prior experiences helped me teach her the best that I could and we both did very well. What made me feel better was that she actually told people that she learned a lot from me.
Stepping up in absence of our chapter president while we had a rough negotiations process. It was really hard to help lead a big group of people while trying to fill a great leaders shoes because of my lack of experience in that area. But from the feedback I’ve received from most people I know I did the best I could and I know I gave over 100% so we could all achieve a great outcome. I truly believe It has made me a better leader in the scheme of things.
I want to be the best chapter president that I can be. I want to be able to lead people better than what I can do now because management is trying to get one over on us and I want to be able to defend everyone to the best of my ability and help the labor movement make great improvements one shop at a time by starting in mine.
