By Northeast Region Coordinator Ron Suslak
On Jan. 16, President Dimondstein appointed me to the vacant Northeast Regional Coordinator position with confirmation by the National Executive Board, following John Dirzius’s retirement from the role on Dec. 31, 2018. John is a personal friend of mine, an outstanding Regional Coordinator, and an energetic labor leader. Our union is better for his many years of hard work and dedication, and I know I will have large shoes to fill in the upcoming months.
