Mike is a Business Agent for Teamsters Local 464. Having worked for 20 years in the food manufacturing industry and now in his position with the Teamsters, Mike has a wealth of knowledge and experience and understands how vital a well-run and cared for OHS program and Joint Health and Safety Committee can be in a workplace.
Mike brings a unique understanding of how OHS policies affect workers and their needs in a changing manufacturing landscape. Mike’s close ties to workers allow for a direct connection from the board to the perspective of every day workers on the front lines of OHS programs in the workplace. Mike has held a seat on a Joint Health and Safety Committee that failed the employees, then fought for management/ownership commitments to improve and saw the committee be reborn as a key contributor to a resurgent Health and Safety culture.
Now with the Teamsters, Mike advocates on behalf of the membership to create unified solutions to Health and Safety issues.
