Our UTSWC family extends our condolences to the family of Bob "Gundy" Gunderson who passed away last weekend.  Bob was a staff person who worked closely with our local union, the Minnesota Federation of Teachers and then Education Minnesota.  Bob also served as a Business Agent with the St. Paul Federation of Teachers before retirement.  We send our deepest sympathies to his family, especially his wife, Mary. Please email Marty at marty.fridgen@edmn.org if you would like the personal address for Mary Gunderson.  

Election 2018

Thank you UTSWC members for voting!  Minnesota had the largest number of midterm voters since 2002.  Also, thank you to those of you who voted in Wisconsin.  Congratulations to Education Minnesota endorsed candidates who will serve in the Minnesota House of Representatives from our area: Anne Claflin, Steve Sandell, and Tou Xiong.  Also, Education Minnesota member Tim Walz is the governor-elect and Education Minnesota member Julie Blaha is the auditor elect.  Thank you to all the candidates who ran in this election.  But most of all thank you for voting!
