President Weber, known for his modesty and effectiveness as a union leader, accepted the award and spoke about the successful strike, saying, “For 84 days my executive board was out there seven days a week with the strikers…nobody crossed the picket line…everybody stuck together.” He concluded, “We must continue to fight corporate greed. This award is for Local 812, and all unions across the country and labor leaders that do this job every day.”
