            Your newly elected Board has officially taken their Oath of Office, administered by the TWU International President Mr. John Samuelsen. The Swearing-In Ceremony took place on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. Sworn in were our new Local 568 President Luis Rodriguez, 1st Vice-President Chuck Hernandez, 2nd Vice-President Joe Catucci, Secretary-Treasurer Greg Iglesias, Recording Secretary Jimmy Gonzalez, Executive Board Members, John Whitehead, Kevin Starling, Ralston Headley, and Mitch Lieberman. Along with our local officials, there were also members of Local 291 that were also being sworn in.

The newly Sworn in Board have been showing exceptional teamwork skills and making things happen. “We are all hopeful and motivated to help and move the Local on a path to success. We are here because of you, and we will be here for you, for the Members,” said new Local 568 President Luis Rodriguez.
