A Message from Council EST Tony Hadley
I want to take this opportunity to say congratulations and thank you to Local 2501. In the last year you have set a standard that every Local Union in this Council and the Brotherhood should strive to mirror. Together you have established a successful Sisters in the Brotherhood committee, elected a new leadership team, bargained a new working agreement with great improvements for the members, been instrumental in two organizing campaigns, and sent Delegates to a national and an international convention where your delegates helped choose the leadership teams and set the direction for the future of our great Union.
These are the things that can only be exhibited by a strong and vibrant Local Union. I want to thank you for your commitment and hard work, and also congratulate you on the goals you have achieved so far! Your efforts have had a positive effect for our members, their families, and the communities in which they live. And that is our main objective.
I look forward to seeing what you take on in the future and hope to work alongside you from time to time. I encourage you to keep up the good fight, stay involved, stay focused, and above all stay UNION STRONG!!
We're please to announce the new grievance tracking system "GrievTrac". You can read more about it on the Grievances page.
2501 Fall Picnic 2015
On Sunday October 18th Local 2501 held a Fall Picnic at Shawnee Park for all members. The event was catered by a local company Sweet Peaches and the menu included barbeque, macaroni and cheese, along with other sides and various desserts. Door prizes were raffled along with a 50/50 drawing. Members from our various shops were in attendance and we has some special visitors including Kentucky Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate Jack Conway and some members of the Louisville Metro Council, several of whom took the opportunity to discuss the importance of organized labor in the work-force. The weather turned cold that day, but it all in attendance had a great and memorable time. We look forward to chances such as the picnic that allow us to come together as brothers and sisters and enjoy each other’s company outside of work. It was truly a wonderful way to begin the fall season.
