SEATTLE – Three Machinists Union District Lodge 751 officers have been elected as vice presidents on the executive board of the Washington State Labor Council.
IAM 751 President Jon Holden was re-elected as one of five vice presidents representing the council’s First District, which covers central Puget Sound.
In addition, IAM 751 Retirement Club President Jackie Boschok was elected to the council’s executive board to represent the Alliance of Retired Americans, and IAM 751 activist Stephanie Lloyd-Agnew was elected to represent the Coalition of Labor Union Women. Lloyd-Agnew is president of CLUW’s Seattle chapter.
All three will be formally sworn in in February to serve four-year terms.
As members of the executive board, Holden, Boschok and Lloyd-Agnew will meet quarterly with their fellow board members to set policies for the Labor Council.
