Vice President’s Message
I am honored and it brings me great pride to have the opportunity to represent the members
of the Independent Railway Supervisors Association as your Vice President.  I’ve been a
member of this organization for 9 years and served as a Local Committeeman for 4 of those
years.  During those years, we fought to preserve our rights, values, and earned a hard won
contract.  Over the next few years, I will be working closely with the Membership, Executive
board and Officers to explore ways to keep our local educated, active and informed.  I will
continue my duty to work for the good of the membership and to ensure that justice and
dignity is maintained on the job.  I strongly encourage all members to get active in the union.  
Unions are about members joining together to bargain collectively with employers, to gain a
strong voice in the workplace and to empower themselves in order to improve their lives.  
IRSA’s greatest strength lies within its membership.  The membership is the Heart of
everything we do. Thank you for the honor and opportunity to serve as your Vice President; I
look forward to leading the way as we move forward together.
Fraternally and Sincerely,
Jamie A. Greene
Vice President
