As 2018 comes to a close the Officers, Executive Board and staff of Local 9 would like to wish all its members a joyous and festive holiday season. As we look to 2019, we need to reflect back on 2018 and look at the positive things that we need to carry forward and continue in 2019 and if there were negative things that happened to change those things into a positive direction for the betterment of 2019.
