Members have shared valuable lessons and knowledge, particularly long-standing members. Trevor appreciates the advice passed down to him from Local 955 Brothers and Sisters. With this knowledge and his past experience, these are the things Trevor brings to the table every day.
In regards to specific people influencing Trevor during his career, Trevor advised, there is no way to answer that other than to say it has not been just one person. It has been a team of people that work together for the same goal of representing the membership to the best of our abilities. They have all influenced me in one way or another.
Trevor appreciates his position and wants to represent the members at Local 955 to the best of his ability and ensure members voices are heard during negotiations. Trevor is happy to meet with members and discuss any issues they may have.
