       My name is Gladys Negron. I started my career with ComEd at Chicago North Care Center in Jan 2000 then transferred to Oakbrook office in 2006. I wanted to be more involved with our Union and in 2010 became a Steward and was promoted to Chief Steward in 2022. Also, in 2022 went from the Elmhurst Unit Recorder to Chairperson and elected Recording Secretary in August. I really love being engaged and helping our brothers and sisters. I have 4 adult children Raelyn(29), Justin(25), Julian (25), and Miguel(21) and a 3 mo. old granddaughter Natalia. I really love spending as much time as possible with my kids and my boyfriend Luis of 14 yrs. We all travel together and hang out or sometimes just stay home and watch movies.                                                               


Thank you, Gladys, for your service to Local 15!
