My name is Diana Avila. You, the members, have a right to a strong, democratic union that can win job security, fair pay, and great benefits. Winning great contracts doesn’t mean anything if we don’t have a union that will enforce your rights. You deserve a union that will provide the best representation possible. I feel as if I would be a great candidate for executive board member, due to the fact I have been at First Student and Bellwood School District 88 for 29 years. I have been in Local 73 Union for 10 years, and I have paid my dues by giving full support along with participating with union meetings and events. I’m honored to say I have been a union steward for two years and also serve on the negotiation committee. Local 73 is my heart and soul. I joined Members Leading Members because I believe in our promise to provide powerful representation, as we know your struggle firsthand. Please vote for our Slate so we can begin the work of building a stronger union for you!
