Guy organized approximately 10,000 workers in a ten
year period for Nursing Homes and Hospital Employees Union District Council
1115, AFL-CIO of New York and New Jersey. Guy kept a 75 percent winning
average at National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) elections and was able to
negotiate contracts in 99 percent of the elections units won. While working
at the Federation as National Director of Organizing, Guy organized and
supervised several Union elections within the Public and Private Sectors.
The elections totaled a combined 91 percent win rate. Contracts have been
negotiated in all organized units won.
“What I would like to accomplish in the long term is to grow the Private Sector three fold from its 2000 year size level and the Public Sector increase its membership by 1500 members within the long term.”
Guy has been active in the Labor movement for over 25
years. He was influenced to join the labor movement due to a desire to
educate workers on how organized labor can improve workers’ lives by giving
them a voice and protecting their rights in the workplace, something that is
taken for granted by too many American workers today.
Guy started out as an Organizer and moved up through the ranks to Assistant Director and Director of Organizing. As Assistant and Director of Organizing at District Council 1115, he supervised seven to twelve organizers in the 10 year period of active organizing.
“The qualifications I have for my position is what I have learned, experienced and accomplished through my years in the labor movement and life in general, with a belief of holding true to the philosophy of teamwork, solidarity, union brothers and sisters uniting for one common cause as the betterment and enrichment of working families’ voices, rights and lives.”
