Jody Powers

Recording Secretary

"Organizing the unorganized and bringing all workers rights to the fore front is an issue that is paramount to making workers, their families and communities stronger. We cannot forget who we represent and their everyday struggles in and out of the workplace. I strongly believe that Local 229 needs to get back the philosophy of a member driven local union."

Jody has been a Registered Practical Nurse and has worked for the past 25 years at Dawson Court on the Special care unit, Jody served as the Unit Chair from 2004 until he joined the Executive Board as a trustee. In 2007 Jody became the full time Community Based Organizer for Local 229 and the full time Recording Secretary on the Executive Board. Jody currently sits as a Trustee on the Nursing Homes and Related Industries Pension Plan. Jody has organized numerous units in the Local and believes strongly that all workers deserve to have their concerns heard and addressed.
