Congratulations Fred Ober Sr
Fred Ober Sr's accomplishments were recognized at the Christmas banquet as he is the 2016 Jackie Kane Award recipient. The Jackie Kane Union Participation Award is given to members whose efforts go above and beyond to further the prosperity and good of local 2 members.
Fred Ober Sr distinguished himself by working tirelessly to help all members of Local 2. Fred became a member in 1958 and shortly after completing his apprenticeship got elected to the Executive Board five years in a row. Fred served two years as the vice president of the Local, then, in 1971 became President for four years.
In 1976, Fred became the Business Agent and served in that office for five years until 1982 when Fred was elected Business Manager serving for 4 years.
In 1969, Fred took great pride in starting a training program to teach apprentices the best way to install new products. Fred is also responsible for getting a building fund started so Local 2 could purchase its first building.
Mr. Ober's motivation comes from his passion, pride and desire to make our Local the best. He always holds himself to a higher standard than most, both on a personal and professional level. He has garnered respect by letting his actions speak louder than words.
Thank you! Mr. Fred Ober Sr. for all you have done and do for our great Local.
