On behalf of all the membership I would like to wish Chuck Macklon a Very Happy Retirement! We thank you for the work you have done both as our Union President and as an activist throughout your career!
Chuck has helped out countless members with a huge range of issues that have arisen in his time with the union. He has been approachable, has listened to his membership and he has always worked to serve the best interests of our membership. Chuck has done an exemplary job of maintaining a good working relationship with the companies that we all work for, even when the other side doesn’t want to play fair and he remained patient and level headed in his dealing, without giving in to their demands. Through this he managed to protect and negotiate strong contracts for all of our units through the worst economic downturn in recent memory! In addition to his regular union duties, he has volunteered countless hours of his own time giving back to our local communities and local charities, as well as internationally through the Steelworkers Humanity Fund.
You have left us with big shoes to fill! Thank you for your Service!
