District Council 7 hosted a retirement celebration in honor of members William Kirby, Brian Rupnick and Bruce Rupnick. As members of District Council 7/Local Union 770 (Big Bend), they each contributed over thirty years of service to the IUPAT. All three members were considered valued employees of Derse, Inc. in Milwaukee. Dean Schmid, president of LU 770, presented gold watches to each of the retirees as gifts for their years of dedication to the IUPAT. The fellow members of the International Union of Painters and Allied trades extend our congratulations to brothers William Kirby, Brian Rupnick and Bruce Rupnick for their hard work during their tenure as members of this great union. The time you’ve dedicated to your crafts has helped make us a stronger union.
