Local 3 2022 Holiday Party

On Thursday, December 29, 2022 the officers of Local 3 celebrated the holiday season by hosting an open house party for the membership at a local restaurant. We had a tremendous turnout and wonderful time was had by all. Together, we're union strong!  

December 12th, 2022 Membership Meeting

Thanks to everyone who came out to our December membership meeting! Congrats to our four lucky winners of the holiday raffle: Elsa Horan, Rose Gregoire, Kenny Manuel, and Mark Holup!   In his report, Local 3 President Kavanagh said Local 3 has the best contract in the retail industry but it is up to an active and engaged membership to protect the rights and benefits the union has fought to achieve since our first contract was signed in 1938. We're bringing these words of wisdom into 2023 with us!
