Dear Brothers & Sisters,
It is with a sad heart to report our long time Business Manager Henry Stanski passed away earlier today. Business Manager Stanski has been the Business Manager of Local 1319 from July of 1993 until recently. Prior to his role as Business Manager, he served the local as an Executive Board member and as President. His leadership through good times and bad will never be forgotten. His wife Carol and his two sisters are in our thoughts and prayers. As of now, we are hearing that any arrangements will be at a later date. We will keep you posted of any future arrangements.
