Shout Out to Jeff
We have to give a shout out to one of our own once in a while. Jeff Starr is the former Vice President of the Marathon County Central Labor Council and a lifetime union member, IBEW 388. Jeff received the Ralph A. Jirikowik award for outstanding service to his community. Sadly, Covid delayed his award until now. Each year Jeff puts on the Labor History in Films in north central Wisconsin, in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin. The event is a day of films mixed with a few brief lectures explaining how unionization began in the United States. Films shown are everything from Mother Jones to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. Labor History in Films is shown every March and is a required by some unions for their apprentices. I urge you to check out Labor History in Films next year and attend. The event is always free and open to the public, donations are always appreciated.
