"A strong Union protects jobs and is vital to a good contract."
Daniel Waken has been employed with the GCRTA since December 1981, currently working as an Equipment Body Mechanic.
Mr. Waken has served multiple terms of office as the Executive Board Member for CBM/CRT. When asked why he decided to run for office, he explained, "I saw the need and knew it would be an opportunity to give back to the Union for providing for me and my family." Mr. Waken believes that the benefits of a union include protecting the workers and keeping the RTA honest.
Looking forward, Mr. Waken believes that ATU Local 268's priorities include unifying the membership.
