Winger, Maciejewski receive recognition

TWO MEMBERS WHO exemplify outstanding political activism received special recognition at this year’s LEAP conference.

Robert Winger, president of Local 11 (Helena, Mont.), received a certificate of appreciation for promoting clean coal technology. Winger has built positive relationships with the offices of Montana’s senators.

He is “the first active field construction Boilermaker to be invited to testify before a United States Senate committee,” said D-PA/SAIP Bridget Martin. He appeared before the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee last Oct. 29.

Gerard “Mozzy” Maciejewski, Local 107 (Milwaukee), was recognized for his tireless efforts and creativity in support of the Campaign Assistance Fund (CAF) and the Legislative Education Fund (LEF). Martin said, “Mozzy is constantly working and thinking of new ways to raise money. He fund raises like nobody’s business!”
