This year, for Women's History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women's history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Lisa Gregory.
Gregory comes from a proud, multigenerational union family. She was a member of the UAW for 10 years prior to joining the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM) in 2013. Before becoming a BCTGM member, Gregory was a hardworking member of Local 58G at the JM Smucker Company in Toledo, Ohio. She won the respect of her peers and was elected to several positions within the local union, last serving as vice president. She was hired as an international representative and is known for her tireless efforts to help organize the unorganized, fight for equality in the workplace through good contracts and provide outstanding service to BCTGM members in union shops throughout the eastern United States.
