Gasworkers Local 18007 Veterans Committee

I am inviting every veteran in the Local 18007 membership to participate and be leaders in the Gasworkers Veteran Committee, by volunteering your time to our shared goal. It is not just a call to the Dawson UW’s and active military but also it is a call to our Legacy veterans. The Veteran Committee meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 at 1700 hours at the Union Office (located at 300 S. Ashland Ave, 5th Floor, Suite 506.

By virtue of being a Local 18007 member who is a veteran, you are qualified to be a member of the committee, but by volunteering your time you can have an impact in the community. Tim Jaroch and I, Don Iocco are the Co-Chairs of the Committee. You will create a group that will not only shed light on veteran issues in Peoples Gas but will be involved in veterans causes in the Chicagoland area. I am an Army veteran. I served honorably. I want to have veterans who exude the warrior ethos. There is no other person who has supported veteran causes more than Tim Jaroch has on behalf of the Local, from beginning the transition of veterans into the workforce using Dawson as a vehicle to give veterans resources to a union job with union benefits, to donating to just causes at the VA Hospital and the Midwest Veterans Closet.

This committee will be in the community. If you want to help veterans who did not get the opportunities in life we have, then this is the group you want to put your energy to good use. You should join and make a difference in this world.
