By Brian AldesWhile we are sad tosee Sue retire fromLocal 320 as itsSecretary-Treasurer,we wish Sue all thebest in her retire-ment. I believe we all deserve an op-portunity to enjoy the fruits of our labor and all of our hard work. Over the past13 years as an employee of Local 320as a Business Agent, Recording-Sec-retary and Vice President, her exampleof leadership is how I will represent our membership.Public employees work hard and arededicated to their communities. Whether they are providing public safety, goodschools, clean parks or customer ser-vice, public employees are the faces of our communities. Our Local needs to
continue to ght hard for the rights of public employees and ght off the at
-tacks of the new anti-government, anti-worker and anti-community politicians.Over the last 12 months we have seenthe Freedom of Employment Scam(right-to-work) legislation, and count-less bills that strip public employees of their rights. In fact, we have received apublic letter written to Governor Daytonby Senator Parry and RepresentativeDrazkowski encouraging Gov. Dayton toviolate the rights of state employees andunilaterally freeze their wages. Theseare vicious attacks without cause and wewill not sit still. As we have lead this Union in the pastunder Sue Mauren’s leadership we willcontinue to work aggressively this Fall toensure only our friends go to the StateCapitol and represent the interests of theworking men and women of Minnesota.We all work hard and deserve the re-spect we have earned.
Tirty our years ago I became a eamster when I washired by the University o Minnesota. From my rst day o work, my co-workers instilled in me the importanceo the Union in our workplace. Trough their guidance, Iquickly became an active and loyal eamster member, andwas elected to the position o union steward on the day Ipassed probation.While I was a dedicated eamster member, I couldn’t haveanticipated the role that this Union would play in my lie.welve years aer being hired by the U, I went to work or Local 320 as an organizer and later a business agent.In 1996 the members elected me to the principal ocerposition o Secretary-reasurer, and I am honored to havebeen re-elected to every term.I have now come to the point in my lie that many o usaspire to, and that is retirement. Efective June 28th 2012, Iresigned as Secretary-reasurer o Local 320 and Presidento Joint Council 32. I will remain Director o the eamstersWomen’s Conerence until December and I will continueto be available to the members and ocers o Local 320any time I am needed.I couldn’t retire without the assurance that I am leavingLocal 320 in good hands. I have the utmost condencein the new Executive Board and I have already been im-pressed with their new ideas.I wish each o you well in the uture. I thank you or thesupport that you have given me as your leader and I hopeyou will do the same or your new Executive Board. Eventhough I am retired, once a eamster, always a eamster.In solidarity,Sue Mauren
