Michael Garrity Appointed to BUC 9

Michael Garrity, Bargaining Unit Representative 9 (BUR 9) at Chapter 305 (San Francisco), is joining Bargaining Unit Council 9 (BUC 9).

Laura Ann Bishop, from Bakersfield, resigned her positions as chapter BUR 9 and at-large member of BUC 9. With the concurrence of the BUC, Chair Rich McGee appointed Michael Garrity to the vacant seat.

Michael is a programmer/analyst and has worked for Enrollment Services (née Admissions and Records) during his entire 28-plus years at San Francisco State University.

He became a union activist, in the words of Abe Osheroff, Because the bastards will never cease their evil and the decent human beings will never stop their struggle. He says I consider helping my fellow workers (I am also a Wobbly) a privilege. Being allowed to help those who struggle to overcome oppression is a gift of great humility and trust from the worker seeking assistance.
