rothers and Sisters,

I want to take this time to thank all of you for your unwavering commitment for building the best truck in the DTNA system. Because of your hard work and dedication, we can continue to lead in market share in the business class truck. I am so proud of this membership for your commitment to this union cause.  What we accomplished this year Is only possible because of you.

So, as we go into the holiday season, I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Please take this time to enjoy your family. We are truly blessed to have this much time off at Christmas. My prayers go out to the families who will be missing loved ones at their Christmas dinner table. I want you to know your union family is here for you and your family.

Thank you all for everything you do to make our union great and our plant the best plant in the DTNA System.

Your hard work and dedication is the heartbeat of our success. Let’s make next year more remarkable. Let’s turn challenges into opportunities and dreams into realities. Together, we are unstoppable.

We win only when we stand together.

 In Solidarity,

 Ricky McDowell
