Union Veteran’s Council
The International Association of Iron Workers along with other AFL-CIO affiliates have formed the Union Veterans Council (UVC) in order to better advocate on behalf of our veteran members and families. In June 2014, we requested, via email and Facebook notification, for all veterans of Local 378 to share their names for a tribute to be published by our International Association. If you received the November 2014 issue of The Ironworker, you may have noticed that over 80 members of Local 378 shared their names and were recognized by the Ironworkers Political Action League for their dedication, courage, sacrifice, and service to our country.
If you found that you were not on the list, and you are a military veteran, please consider joining the Union Veterans Council, by registering online here.
If you have further questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact our International’s Political and Legislative Director and Vietnam veteran, Dave Kolbe, via phone at (202)383-4805 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
