Why did you join AFM Local 655?

I chose to be a member of the Union because I wanted to feel like a part of a larger organization. As a musician it can be discouraging at times if you don't have a support system in place like the Musicians Union. My father and grandfather were postal workers and were union members as well so I take pride in the fact that in some way I'm following in their footsteps.
