IUPAT Member Receives Governor Appointment

DC-5aIn a collective effort to raise awareness and bring change to the political landscape in Alaska, District Council 5 members and International staff successfully campaigned on behalf of now-Governor Bill Walker. As an Independent, Walker is a labor-friendly Governor. He appointed IUPAT Local Union 1959 retiree Mike Andrews to be the Director of Business Partnerships for the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development. This appointment and the election of Governor Walker are proof that the IUPAT will continue to build relationships and opportunities for our members and organized labor through political action.
