HUNTINGTON — The SW District Labor Council recently elected officers for the coming two years, and Tim Millne of Laborers’ Interna­tional Union of North America Local 543 will serve as president, according to a news release.

The new officers, who assume their duties Jan. 13, also include:

VICE PRESIDENT: William Champe, Commu­nication Workers of America Local 2009

SECRETARY TREASURER: Kathy McCormick, Service Employees International Union, Local 1 19 9

RECORDING SECRETARY: Tammy Moore, Com­munication Workers of America Local 2009

SERGEANT AT ARMS: Robert Adkins, United Steelworkers of America Local 40 Executive Board: Pete Vaughan III, Internation­al Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 317; Dr. Joseph Wyatt, Marshall University American Federation of Teachers; Jeffery Rowe, Sheet Metal Workers International Union, Local 24.

VIP DIRECTOR: Joyce Gibson, Service Employ­ees International Union, Local 1199.

The SW District Labor Council, AFL-CIO, represents thousands of working families in eight counties, and Millne said he plans to increase participation from council delegates and members.

“SW District Labor Council will be very vocal on issues and policies that would hurt or under­mine our members, our seniors, our veterans, our children and our communites,” Millne said in the release. “We will continue to be a constant in the political process and hold accountable those who say one thing but do another.”
