Ricky Gilmore, after 28 years with the county, and Chris Tobkin, after 15 years with the county are retiring at the end of June. Both have been instrumental in the growth and strength of Local 88. Ricky has an encyclopedic knowledge of bargaining and our contract and Chris Tobkin has been a chief steward and champion of workers in the county for nearly all of her time with the county. Both are well-known in Local 88 for their big hearts and sense of justice. They will be missed.
Their freedom in retirement leaves a void for Local 88 and they will be missed! But we congratulate them and wish them well. Join us in celebrating their accomplishments and presence in our lives:
