In the First Person:

It is in our interest and in the best interest of our members to be on the forefront of the battle towards a healthier environment for us all.

I am a Marketing Representative for the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 478. We represent these members to ensure they are treated fairly and that their employers pay their benefits and wages on time so that they can retire with dignity and respect.

We serve the working class families that are clearly affected the most as a direct result of living in the inner cities. It is in our interest and in the best interest of our members to be on the forefront of the battle towards a healthier environment for us all.

In the cities, we have a higher concentration of individuals (mainly children and elderly) whom are stricken with asthma and other bronchial ailments.

It is an honor for me to travel and meet with other individuals who are in the same fight and to have an opportunity to create change along with our respected legislators.
