Today in Labor History

Aug. 20, 1986
Deranged relief postal service carrier Patrick “Crazy Pat” Henry Sherrill shoots and kills 14 co-workers, and wounds another six, before killing himself at an Edmond, Oklahoma, postal facility. Supervisors had ignored warning signs of Sherrill’s instability, investigators later found; the shootings came a day after he had been reprimanded for poor work. The incident inspired the objectionable term “going postal.”

Stewards Undergo Extensive Training Designed to Sharpen Skills
Updated On: Apr 12, 2012


MAR. 21, 2012 |  Sixty-three of our shop stewards are brushing up on their representational skills at "Education for a Democratic Workplace," a Local 570-sponsored 3-day steward training conducted by Professor Michael Childers from the University of Wisconsin's School for Workers, a university extension of continuing education and outreach.

"This seminar presents a great opportunity for our leaders to learn, but also network with other Local stewards which helps them better understand the issues facing them in their own shops," said Principal Officer Sean Cedenio.

Childers advised stewards to "look at every conversation you have with a member as an opportunity to grow the union." The seminar will conclude tomorrow. More coverage to come.
