Pride Month Proclamation

On his first day in office our new President Jason Roberts named June as LGBTQ Pride Month for Local 691. It is the beginning of a long stretch of ensuring diversity and inclusion in our Union. It is the beginning of fulfilling  commitments he made while running for office in 2021.
