FROM THE DESK OF BUBBA CRADDOCK
Happy New Year and Welcome to 2022. I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday season with their families and friends. This is always a good time to take inventory of oneself, check our priorities, and make the adjustments needed to maximize the joy, peace, and prosperity in our lives.
A new year will bring new opportunities as well as challenges personally and professionally. As we stand united to meet these challenges, it is important to remember that we are always stronger together. It is impossible for us all to agree on everything but there are far more common goals than there are differences. We, as Union members are fighters by nature. A true fighter knows that you can’t win every round, but you’ve got to be ready to fight again. We learn, we adjust, and we put a plan together to go another round.
So, let us measure our success with our ability to provide and care for our loved ones. Let’s take pride in the fact that we have all contributed to one another’s fight for continued and improved standards of living. Most importantly, let’s pass our fighting spirit on to the incoming and future generations so they will also be prepared to fight. If you have been on the sidelines and you’re tired of spectating, please reach out a steward, your VP, or the Local and find out how you can get involved.
