The Job Steward Alliance is alive and well. However, over the last few years there has been less participation so we changed the meeting to a quarterly basis. Local 157's brother Gerry Crowley has stepped up to keep things moving with this vital club. We are planning some events in the near future so please check our website jsanyc.com
Let's start getting the union back in the right direction,yes,we are in the fight of our life's,but it is long overdue,we need pride,integrity, direction,insight,and a good group of dedicated union stewards who care about the union and its members,we are one,one for one,we all stick together,pride and determination will bring the brotherhood in the future for all.
