As President of Local 1504, both I and my Executive Board welcome you to our site

This site was designed to keep our bargaining unit employees and union members informed on important matters relating to our workplace, workplace rights, our union and our fellow brothers and sisters. Our "Contact" page has links, by name, that will make your "trip" into our Local 1504 website easy.
If you have any suggestions on how to make this site even better, please feel free to provide me feedback at mario.padilla.afge1504@gmail.com. Also, if you are a newer employee to Fort Lewis, "Welcome!" Never has our need to build membership, communicate and "fight the good fight" been more important!

Did you Know?

If you are called into a meeting with management and you believe that the questioning could in any way lead to your being disciplined or terminated, or affect your personal working conditions, you have the right to request that a Union representative or Steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, explain that you choose not to answer any questions.

Freedom's something our people in the Military earned a long time ago, a better life for our people, the Union earned for a very long time, but it doesn't end there. We have to keep on earning it or it will disappear. Support our Veterans and their families and THINK UNION.
