Congratulations to Local 483 Newly Elected E-Board and Officers!

On Wednesday, October 30, Local 483 members elected our union’s new Executive Board and Officers for the term 2013-2016. Hector Azpilcueta, our former Vice-President, will be taking over as Secretary Treasurer! We are looking forward to working toward Hector’s vision of organizing and building power for the future. We are also thrilled to welcome Chuck Smith, groundskeeper from Asilomar, as our new Vice-President! Chuck has demonstrated outstanding commitment and dedication to our union, both inside and outside of his hotel. It is a privilege to have him.

Also new to the Local 483 leadership are Julie Pizzo, barista/bartender from the Lodge at Pebble Beach, Jesus Gonzalez, room service server from the Highlands Inn, and Bertrand Deprez, banquet server at Pebble Beach Company. Julie, Jesus, and Bertrand have all been on picket lines, sat in negotiations, and volunteered their time to support Local 483 and the causes we care about. We are so excited to have them! Our returning Executive Board members and Officers have also done much to move the union forward; thank you for your service and welcome back, Julianne Brooks, Chizuko Calhoun, and John Allioti. We can’t wait to see what’s next! Congratulations to the following individuals:
