ASPEP Service History:

Councilperson late 2000s
ASPEP Member all Eligible Years
Participated in four ASPEP Contract Negotiation Sessions (management)
Our workload at LM has been growing having well over 100 open requisitions and L3Harris is looking to expand their business with recent open requisitions and more to come. To me, what is most important, is our represented employees, our capabilities, and our partnering with the companies to achieve a satisfied workforce. 2019 was another good year for ASPEP and the companies and the ASPEP leadership engages with them for the general well-being of our members recognizing and providing a voice for us as world-class engineers and scientists.
We understand that our companies value our importance and we retain our identity with due recognition. We concluded successful negotiations for Services with LM on a five year contract and this year we do not have any scheduled negotiations. ASPEP continues to collaborate with our respective companies, work to retain our job base, and strive to implement mutual solutions to satisfy our customers’ needs. We protect our membership benefits recognizing the economic realities in our country that drive affordability considerations.
As I have done in the past, I will continue to bring my background experience and understanding of the ever-changing military acquisition policies in a highly competitive environment to strategically lead our highly skilled membership. I have and will provide clear and timely communications to our membership, listen, and act on member concerns. I will work relentlessly with both companies to maintain and nurture our professional relationship for our members. I take pride in my professional achievements and established ASPEP relationships and will continue to leverage my personal associations with the leadership of our companies to our mutual benefit.
