I have held several job titles within at&t during my 27 years of employment. I began as a Service Order Typist, term employee. I was offered a permanent job as an operator and from there I became a Service Representative. Life changes moved me to Southern Indiana for a couple of years and that is where I became a Design Specialist, that is the job title I hold today, only in Indianapolis.

My experience as a Union Representative has offered me the opportunity to be a Steward, Chief Steward, Area Representative, President and currently Secretary/Treasurer. Along with the years of representational responsibilities I have also been active with the Election, Legislative, Community Service, Mobilizing, Safety and Organizing Committees. I have also facilitated or helped in training several hundred of our members in Mobilizing, Unity@Mobility, and Basic Stewards training.

My number one responsibility to you is to ensure that our local remains fiscally responsible so that we may continue to represent and educate our members so that we are prepared for any obstacle put in front of us.

My friends, it is solidarity of labor we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces and say to each other: “We must be together; our masters are joined together and we must do the same thing.”—Mother Jones, 1902

Brothers and Sisters, I am a 26 year dues paying union member and proud to be so! I started my career with Indiana Bell in the summer of 1988 by taking out payphones as a temporary employee. At the end of that summer I was offered a full time position as a Directory Assistance Operator. After serving my time as an operator I transferred outside and have held multiple positions as an outside technician working for the current at&t.

During this journey my union involvement has ranged from an elected Steward, Chief Steward, Area Representative, Vice-President, elected member of the CWA/at&t bargaining committee and I am now serving my second term as Local 4900 President. I thoroughly enjoy fighting against the injustices our members are faced with each and every day. My passions are teaching, supporting and fighting side by side with those who look to move our union forward and grow our jobs. My favorite quote, Mother Jones; “Pray for the dead, fight like hell for the Living!”

I’ve been employed by AT&T for over 23 years. I began my career in Anderson, Indiana as a Lineman. Eventually I took a position as a cable splicer in Marion, and later transferred to the Muncie garage. Soon after that I took a position as an IM repair technician. Most of my current job duties involve maintaining air pressure. My role as a Union Representative began as a Steward and eventually Chief Steward for 10 years. Eventually I was elected by my members to serve as their Area Rep and have 6 years experience on our local Executive Board. Most notable trainings are first and second year leadership school as well as mobilization training. I also serve as Secretary for the East Central Indiana Labor Council for the AFL-CIO, and a Board member of the Delaware County United Way. I am here to stand up for your rights and mine. I am Union!

Hi, I’m Larry Versmesse and I have been a member of CWA and worked for AT&T for 27 years. I have always been involved in the Union since I started in 1987. I started my Union career as a steward at the RDC and also served on the safety committee.

My trainings include; Mobilization training and first and second year Leadership school.

I’m married and we have two Boys and one Girl. They are the joy of my life! I enjoy watching pro labor movies; it helps me to keep a good respect for the folks that have put up the good fight for us to enjoy the benefits we currently enjoy as Union Members. Plus it gives me good ideas. LOL!

I’ve been employed by AT&T for 17 years and a splicer by trade. Prior to my current position I was employed by a local cable company for 17 years which was also represented by local 4900. I’ve been a proud member of this local for 34 yrs. In my early years as a member, I realized that the Union was not those who represent us, the Union is all of us. Workers should have some say in the conditions under which they labor and should be paid enough to allow them to live in comfort and treated with dignity. I quickly understood that in order to make change, it would take all of us doing our part.

It was 32 years ago I got involved as a steward and since then have held the title of Chief Steward, Area Representative and Vice President of our local. I currently serve on the legislative committee and oversee the education and mobilization committees. I’ve attended several trainings but most notable are 1st and 2nd year leadership school, mobilization training, Officers training and Labor Arbitration Institute seminar. “I am Union” … and proudly serve the members of this local!
