In Mike O'Neills words, 
It was a pleasure to hear Jim share stories of his career in the Postal Service and the NALC. Jim was President of the Westwood Branch prior to merging with Branch 38 and during the Great Postal Strike of 1970. He recalled how two Postal Inspectors came to his home to serve him with a subpoena to appear in court as a leader of the strike. He remebered how apologetic the Inspectors were because they fully supported the strike. He reminded us how everything changed as a result of the strike, most notably collective bargaining. For someone who began his career as a letter carrier making only $0.85 an hour, this was monumental. 
Jim served Branch 38 as Director of Retirees and Health Benefit Representative for many years. We remain grateful for his service, and look forward to many more years of his support and participation in Branch 38.
