President's Message

“USW welcomes us with open arms.”

GMP Attends the USW Convention

As you all know, our GMP staff and over two hundred of our Local Union members were invited guests at the USW Convention held in Las Vegas in April. We were able to observe firsthand the strength and vitality of the USW. The USW welcomed us with open arms and had many of their officers and staff visit with the GMP during our Board meeting, which was held immediately prior to the USW convention. They shared with us information about their programs, staff and capabilities and made clear they stand ready to help the GMP and our locals in any way possible. For all of those who attended the event, it reaffirmed for us the wisdom of our merger partner choice. As my report for this edition of Horizons, I would like to share with the membership my letter to President Gerard discussing the USW Convention.
