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 matthew.w.hines.civ@mail.mil. Also, if you are a newer employee to JBLM, "Welcome!" Never has our need to build membership, communicate and "fight the good fight" been more important!
