Counsel to the Board and longtime friend to the OPBA Andy Douglas has passed away. Many of us have fond stories of Andy and his legal mind but organized labor will always remember him for his belief in collective bargaining. Andy had a long history with the OPBA that spans back many years—even when the organization was known as the NOPBA. We thank Andy for his many years of service to the OPBA and its members. Please keep Andy’s wife and his family in your prayers.❮❯
