My name is Teresa “Jill” Philips, and I am a proud union member and a dedicated tollway worker. I fought to keep the union strong and the highway running safely for 33 years. As a member-organizer and a loud proud union member, I have demanded dignity and respect for Local 73 members at the tollway for more than three decades. Now, more than ever, we need leadership from rank and file members who know firsthand the struggles Local 73 Members face. We don’t need the out-of-town trustees.I am ready to put my heart and soul into building member power for the best representation possible. I am ready to stand up and fight against the attacks on working people from the bosses and the Washington, D.C., political class.
