Chief Shop Steward

Rick Tanaka

I’ve been involved with our union for the past 20 years in various capacities (1st & 2nd Vice President, Recording Secretary, Executive at Large and currently your Chief Shop Steward). My focus has been on grievance handling and workplace conflicts, while I remain involved with Health & Safety while continuing to take union-related courses to further educate myself.

I have a simple philosophy; strive to better our union and understand the issues regarding our younger members as well as the seasoned.
