|“CELEBRATING OVER FIFTY YEARS OF FIGHTING FOR PROGRESS FOR OUR MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.”It is not an overstatement to say that Local 444 has played a significant leadership role throughout its proud history in the battle to improve conditions for the working class.The visionary leadership of our first president, Charlie Brooks, laid the foundation for a vibrant and dynamic organization that continues to grow. During his tenure (1956-1977), Brooks led Chrysler workers to unprecedented gains in wages and benefits, which had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of workers and families across the land. But his impact went much deeper than that.Charlie shared with us a broader social vision which tells us that together, we can effect real change not only within our workplaces, but within society as a whole; a community-minded vision which places people before profits.This vision has been carried forward by those who stepped up to lead Local 444 after the death of Charlie Brooks in 1977. Frank LaSorda (1977-1982), Ken Gerard (1982-1990) and Larry Bauer (1990-1994) each reinforced, nurtured and built upon this vision during their terms in office, not only following in Charlie Brooks’ footsteps, but carving new paths in the struggle against the right-wing attack on the working class.
With a united membership and the progressive leadership of our current President, Ken Lewenza, we continue our quest for a just society and an equitable distribution of the wealth that is created through the labour of the working class.
