After an impressive 21 years at JBS in Brooks (formerly Lakeside Packers), Adem has entered a well-earned retirement. Having worked on the kill floor, Adem also actively attended union meetings and kept up to date on issues affecting he and his coworkers. He remembers the days before the union and tells us that it was very hard before the union came to the plant.
“I really appreciate belonging to UFCW Local 401,” he tells us.
Now that his time is his own, Adem plans to spend time with old friends and helping out with anything his loved ones need.
Thank you for your dedication to creating solidarity in your workplace, Adem. You will be missed and we thank you for your membership, all the way back to the earliest days.
