West Virginia and South Central PA UAW CAP Councils Meet
By UAW Region 8 CAP Representative Jim Rogers
The Executive Boards of the WV and SC PA met on Saturday, April 16, 2011 in Wheeling, WV. As part of their activities while in Wheeling, the councils have made it a yearly event to beautify the statue of our fourth President Walter Reuther. Region 8 erected the statue of Walter Reuther along the banks of the Ohio River in Wheeling and the dedication ceremony was held on Thursday, October 12, 2006. This was a joint effort with the Wheeling National Area Corporation, one that honored one of America’s great labor leaders.
Each year UAW members from WV and SC PA take pride in cleaning and maintaining the area around the statue. The council members are thanked for their dedicated efforts each year.
