This year, 35 individuals submitted an application for review, each with an exceptional essay that included a detailed perspective of the meaning of the term “Right-to- Work,” the implications of “Right-to- Work” for union members and the ability to collectively bargain, and the U.S. Presidential candidates’ viewpoints on “Right-to-Work.” The awards were presented to four outstanding applicants. The winners were Bianca Furci (Vincent Furci, Local 15), Sara Monahan (Timothy Monahan, Local 15A), Vincent Grippo (Vincent Grippo, Ill, Local 15C), and Nicholas Rauchbauer (Robert Rauchbauer, Local 15A). President Callahan, along with the Executive Director of the General Contractors Association Denise Richardson, presented each of the winners with a check in the amount of ,000. At a separate event, Local 15, 15A, 15B, 15C, 15D and 15H honored thirty 50-year members and thirty-nine 25-year members at ceremonies conducted in conjunction with the Regular Quarterly Meetings held in New York City.
