Greetings to all District Lodge 19 Members

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
General Chairman Kyle Loos has been appointed to the vacant position of Assistant President/Directing General Chairman.  AP/DGC Loos brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this position.  Brother Kyle became a Machinist Apprentice on July 20, 1998 on the BNSF Railroad in Lincoln Nebraska and gained Journeyman Status on April 27, 2001. 

Brother Kyle is a member of Local Lodge 612 in Lincoln, Nebraska.  There he served as the Local Lodge Recording Secretary, Local Chairman, Auditor and Trustee.  He has been a Delegate at several NE State AFL-CIO Constitutional Conventions, State AFL-CIO Cope Convention and Legislative Conferences.   He was also a Lobbyist for the NE State Council of Machinists.

Brother Kyle is a Delegate to the Lincoln Central Labor Union.  Earlier this year he received the LCLU, W. Bauer Award for his outstanding labor leadership in his community.  

Please join me in congratulating Brother Kyle Loos on his new position.  I know he will do a great job and service the membership very well in his new position.

District Lodge 19 also appoints General Chairman John Denny, from Laurel Montana and Local Lodge 602 as District Lodge 19 Communicator.  Brother Denny volunteered for this position, and has done an outstanding job, so how could I say no.   Brother Denny has already developed and maintains the District’s Facebook page. Over the next several months all the communications, such as the Newsletter and Website will be transitioned to him. 

Brother Denny was a District Lodge 19 E-Board member prior to becoming a General Chairman in 2014.  He served his Local Lodge as a Delegate to several District Lodge 19 Conventions and IAMAW Transportation Conferences.  He presently services BNSF and Montana Rail Link Railroad Machinists in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Colorado and Nebraska.  In addition, he services all BNSF Traveling Mechanics from Alabama to California. 

He works closely with Montana AFL-CIO and has volunteered his time for District Lodge 19’s Annual Golf Tournament as well as the Annual Guide Dogs Tournament in Las Vegas.

Brother Denny, thank you for volunteering to become District Lodge 19’s Communicator and taking on the important duties of the Communicator.

In Solidarity,
Mike Perry
