L-D465 members receive in-plant training

EIGHT MEMBERS OF Local D465 (Oklahoma City) received training March 26 in how to organize co-workers at their plant. Employees at the facility make PVC piping for Prime Conduit. Oklahoma is one of 22 states that does not allow union security contract language. Workers in these “right-to-work” states may refuse to join the union that represents them. However, unions are much more effective in winning better wages, benefits, and working conditions when all workers belong. Taking part in the training are, l. to r., Freddy Hill, vice president; Judy Bennett; Leo FawFaw, secretary-treasurer; Brad Hubbs, president; Darren Kemp; Chris Cannon; Richard Cook; and Van Ethridge. IR Amanda Stinger, far right, assisted with the in-plant training, which was provided by John Chapman, Assistant Director for Industrial Sector Operations. Local D-465 was chartered in 1984.
