Dear Local 791 Members,
I am writing this letter to inform you that Local 791 Business Agent Patty Donovan has announced she will be retiring effective May 1st, 2020. Patty has served Local 791 as a Steward, a Secretary, and an Executive Board Member prior to becoming a Business Agent in 1995. Patty also was involved in countless negotiating sessions as an integral member of the Local 791 Negotiating Committee.


All told, her full-time career with Local 791 spanned over 30 years. Patty was a dedicated Representative who passionately serviced the Membership of Local 791.  She was a Trade Unionist in the truest sense of the word. Her diligent and compassionate efforts on behalf of our members will always be remembered by everyone who had the privilege to work with her.  She will be missed by all.


Would you please join me in wishing Patty a happy, healthy and well-deserved retirement?


Sincerely and fraternally,


Russell Regan
