A Message from Secretary-Treasurer Mike Cales

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The members of Local 710 have spoken!

I would like to thank the membership for electing me to continue to serve as Secretary-Treasurer/Principal Officer, placing your trust and confidence in my ability to lead our Local in the years ahead. I do not take this position for granted. You have my commitment to serve in the best interests of the members and their families as we continue to grow our Local, fighting for the best contracts in the industry.

The Executive Board elect is thankful and humbled and ready to hit the ground running to continue the work of the Union as your representatives and advocates on issues that matter most to the members.

This year’s election was about listening to the members questions, concerns and ideas. We pledge to continue to and be guided by your input. You can count on us to fight for and communicate with the members so that we continue to work hard as we move forward together.

I would like to thank all those that ran for positions and applaud all the candidates. I am in awe of your tireless efforts. The time is now to come together and support each other for the best interest of the members and their families.
