Thomas Joseph Dwyer
Class of 1954
Through my activities in TCU/BRAC I became involved in the Minnesota labor movement as well. I was appointed as a Delegate to the Minneapolis Central Labor Union Council AFL-CIO Committe on Political Education (COPE) in 1975 and held that position until retirement in 1997. Today the council has been renamed the Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation AFL-CIO.
I also served as a COPE member and a Vice President of the Minnesota AFL-CIO from 1975 to 1997. After retirement I was elected a vice president of the Minnesota AFL-CIO Retiree Council in 1997 and still hold that position today.
As a railroad worker I joined the National Association of Retired & Veteran Railway Employees, Inc. (NARVRE) in 1986 11 years before I retired. I served as Local Unit 109 Legislative Representative from 1986 to 2007 and president from 2005 to 2007. I also served as National Legislative Director from 2000 to 2008 for NARVRE. In 2008, I was elected National President of NARVRE in Spokane, WA and hold that position to this day. See www.narvre.info for further reference
