Message From Chapter President:
I’m sure most of you have heard by now, but the election results are in! We have a change in leadership:
President: Jera Honda
Vice President: Gabriel Davis
Treasurer: Rene Garcia
Corresponding Secretary: Delmonique Lyons
Recording Secretary: Carlos Ortega
Directors At Large: Reinaldo Velasquez & Reynaldo Marte
First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing office staff. Your service has been much appreciated and I look forward to continuing to work with you all in the future.Looking forward we have a lot of ideas we are looking to implement as quickly as possible.Primarily, I want to make effective communication a priority. Please be on the lookout for
changes to the website and the newsletter.
Also, I want to introduce my team to you all. I will be sending out dates and times for the office staff to be working out of the different ports’ offices. This way we can get a better handle on the specific issues facing officers at each port.
I ask that you give our new staff members a couple weeks to settle in and get acclimated. However, I do not want anything to fall through the cracks. If you have a current issue/grievance pending with the Union, I will be contacting you personally to touch base. If you have not heard from me by February 14, 2020, please reach out to me at so we can
make sure we have all the information we need.
Lastly, to everyone who took the time to vote in the last election thank you, your continued participation is what keeps the Chapter strong. To those of you who voted for me, thank you for your support. I couldn’t have done it without you, and to those of you who didn’t, I will be working hard to change your mind.
Jera L. Honda
