Our union is the best union in the country. There’s no comparison.
Front and center at the CSO Conference this year was Construction Sector Operations retiring Executive Director Mark Vandiver. Members and staff honored him with gifts, a Riveter statue designed by the late Charles Jones and a plaque from Canadian brothers and sisters.
“I want to thank Mark Vandiver for all his dedication to this organization,” President Newton B. Jones said as he presented Vandiver with a Riveter statue.
Vandiver said he was grateful for his time serving the Construction Sector. “It’s been great working with all the business managers. Our union is the best union in the country. There’s no comparison.”
Tim Simmons, L-108 (Birmingham, Alabama) was named the new executive director of CSO. Previously he held the position of assistant director of CSO and director of national recruitment.
