UAW Local 298 Make Their Community Cleaner
UAW Local 298 represents the Bargaining Unit that works for Raytheon Co in Largo, primarily at the Young-Rainey Star Center. We just joined the Adopt a Mile program and started with the first of three miles in Largo, on Bryan Dairy Road between Belcher and Starkey Road. The other two Miles we adopted are at Johns Pass and Treasure Island. We will start cleaning those in October, during part of Pinellas beach clean-up.
Today we had 17 people cleaning, Union members and family members. Organized by Union Brother Robert Krischer and his girlfriend Becky Bottoms. Brother Krischer is our Local's Community Service Chairman. Today we filled 19 bags of trash, estimating at 120 pounds of garbage removed from the sides of the road and medium.
We are honored to serve our communities.
Ron Morgan is president of UAW Local 298.
