Local 100 President Samuelsen Named TWU International Administrative Vice President

Samuelsen, who will retain his full duties as Local 100 President, said: "I am looking forward to working with the Administrative Committee and my fellow officers from Local 100 and the other Locals on the International Executive Council and Board to meet the many challenges facing all TWU Locals from all Divisions, including Air Transport, Railroad and Transit, Utility and Universities."

Samuelsen added that he is happy that Local 100's voice will once again be prominent on the Administrative Committee.  "This is a good thing for Local 100 and our national union."

The IAC is responsible for all areas of governance of the International Union and its Local affiliates.

In addition to Samuelsen, who had already been serving as an International Vice President, other Local 100 officers and staff on the International Executive Council and Board include: Brian Clarke, Tony Utano, Nelson Rivera, Curtis Tate, James Whalen, Tom Lenane, Richie Davis and Derrick Echevarria.
