John Lewis Retires!
On March 31st ICWUC Vice-President/Regional Director John Lewis officially retired after 23 years of employment with the ICWUC. John worked as an International Representative in ICWUC Region 1 which goes from California east all the way to New Mexico and as far north as Montana. He was promoted to Vice-President in 2006 and assumed responsibility for all of Region 1 at that time. He has been one of the finest Vice-Presidents, Representatives, and friend to all of our members in the ICWUC that we could imagine. He continually worried about each and every member of each and every local he worked for. He has served our members excellently since he was hired by President Martino in 1990 and he will be sorely missed.
But our loss becomes the gain of his lovely wife, Estella. John and Estella will continue to reside in the hometown of Hemet, California. Remember, John, now that you will be working for Estella there are NO more negotiations!
We wish John and Estella a long, happy and healthy retirement. God Bless my friend.
Vince Diaz became a member of Local 110 in December 1975 while employed at the Hooker Chemical Plant. At that time Local 110 was a composite local representing 5 separate union contracts.
In the fall of 1976 Vince was elected as shop steward in the Electrolytic Department. After serving as an officer in nearly every capacity, Vince was elected President in 1991, an office he held until the local closed in 2002.
During the early 1990’s Vince was appointed as a Special Representative to work in Henderson, Nevada at Local 313 Kerr Magee Company along with John Lewis, on and off for two years while the company ran decertification drives against the local.
In the mid 1990’s Vince organized a new unit into Local 110, Olympic Chemical. Unfortunately a labor contract was never reached.
During the early 2000’s Local 109 merged with Local 110 and Vince handled the effects bargaining for the local with the Auto Fina Plant in Portland, Oregon and the effects bargaining with Pioneer Chemicals in 2002.
Vince was brought on staff as a Field Staff Representative in September 2002. Shortly after becoming a rep Vince organized a new unit of Local 121 the Customer Service Representatives.
Vince’s 38 years of membership, service and experience with the ICWU has prepared him for his new position as Vice President of Region 1.
