Jessica E. R. Carroll

Unit 13 Director

 

Why are you running for office?

It is a crucial time for workers to understand the benefits of union membership and to keep members engaged. I bring a unique perspective to the table and have an understanding of the challenges that face us, given the multitude of job roles that comprise Unit 13.

What are your goals?

My goals include continuing to outreach to members and encouraging them to become involved in their union. I would like to explore opportunities to educate and empower members. Additionally, I plan to continue to advocate for more competitive contracts for Unit 13 members.
