6 Generations Gather
On June 12th, approximately 50 retirees gathered at the Union Hall for a breakfast social. The group's careers spanned six decades of public service and Union involvement. The event was a huge success and sets the stage for future events. We would like to thank all of the retirees, officers and E-board members for taking the time to attend.
Bankrupt Detroit’s ‘legacy costs’ have human faces
If Detroit were a bank, it would have been bailed out years ago. And if Brendan Milewski were a banker, he wouldn’t be contemplating financial ruin.

A total of 22 TVFR employees forming 14 Teams were part of 60 volunteers overall serving in the Philippines.
Our folks were a large part of the effort serving 6,000 volunteer hours and treating 22,500 Patients/beneficiaries.

Local 1660 aquired her about two years ago from TVFR. The engine was initially built for the Kaiser ship yards in Portland, OR during the Great Depression.
Our own Zach Williams got her running, she currently rests on display at the Union Hall.
