Leadership change for UAW Local 95
United Auto Workers Local 95 may soon have another leadership change.
Current President Brad Dutcher has accepted a position with the International Union as a Service Rep. As Service Rep for the region, Dutcher says UAW Local 95 will be included in his duties. In fact, he'll still have an office at the Union Hall. Dutcher officially took control of the "local" last month from retiring President Mike Sheridan. Current UAW Local 95 First Vice President Andy Richardson will take over the president's duties. The moves become official July 28th.
Dutcher says he's already gotten permission from the International Union to continue efforts to convince General Motors to keep a presence in Janesville following their announcement to close the plant.
