KEEP MAINTENANCE STRONG !

TESTIMONIALS !         

You couldn't ask for a for a better or more responsive team than the Keep Maintenance Strong Team 2019. For the 15 years I was a steward and Maintenance Craft Director in the Greater Seattle Area and Cascade Area local. I have had the honor of working with Jimmie Waldon. Together he and I did some great work. He was always there to assist and to bounce ideas off of. I have also worked with Terry Martinez and Director Balogun. They too have bent over backwards with quick responses, advice and guidance. Maintenance couldn’t ask for a better team. Though I am now retired, I truly feel Maintenance is in good hands with these three representing you!

George Engel, Greater Seattle Area Local (Retired).

These gentlemen are the Real Deal. They have your best interest at heart !

Steve Schwuchow, Tampa Area Local, FL

I am endorsing the Maintenace Strong Team. I have worked with these men for many years.  They always take the time to help in any way they can.  They all were trained by a great maintenance Director (Mr Steve Raymer).  Everyone of these men are hard working dedicated unionists. As the Idaho State President I am committed to this maintenance  team.  A vote for this team in this time of contract negotiations will not let us down. 

James Correll, President State of Idaho

I wholeheartedly support my brother, Director Balogun and his Team for election as Maintenance Director and Assistant Directors.

Balogun stepped up to the position and immediately embarked on setting a strong course of action of progress for this critical craft division, His excellent work ethic reflects his desire to serve his fellow Maintenance members.

But in the short time  period since his elevation to the National Executive Board,  as Director he has demonstrated his independence and forthright recognition that his voice also serves the general interests of the entire APWU.

I have represented Maintenance for 36 years and Balogun has helped me fulfill my responsibilities by always lending a hand and standing beside me!

I am both honored and blessed to know my brother not just as unionists but as family. Since his early career in Los Angeles Balogun has always put others first! And he has defended Maintenance to the hilt. This level of representation makes Maintenance Strong!

I SUPPORT THE MAINTENANCE TEAM.  KEEP MAINTENANCE STRONG ! 

Omar Gonzalez, Western Region Coordinator
