Jeff Kehlert falls short of his quest for National Vice President of APWU
Jeff Kehlert, whom our local endorsed for Vice President, fell short of his quest for the office of National APWU Vice President. For now, that means Jeff will no longer be representing the members of our great union. It is a loss that will be greatly missed.
As of now, we are not sure what plans Jeff has for his future. It is our hope that he remains somehow involved with our union, with helping our members, and continuing the great work he has done, in some capacity.
It is worth noting that our local overwhelmingly supported Jeff in the election. While we did not have the voter turnout we hoped for, we exceeded the national turnout by a large margin. The officers of this local thank those who took the time to vote, to be involved and have a voice in who leads this great union.
We congratulate those unionists who were elected to their respective positions, and we look forward to working with them to advance the interests of our members.
