My name is Anthony Trentadue and I am currently the Chief Steward out of North Region. I have been at the Company since 2013 and have been a steward in various departments including the Call Center, Commercial Center, and now C&M and New Business for North Region. I am also the Unit Chair for the Northern Region Unit meeting held in Gurnee. Please come out to your unit meeting and have YOUR voice heard. Me and my lovely wife Natalie have been married for 3 years and have a son, Vito, who just turned one in January. While I have been very busy with the new addition to our family, in my free time I enjoy motorcycle riding solo or with a group. Always looking for more people to ride with, so if you’d like to meet up, reach out and let’s ride! Thank you, Anthony, for your service to Local 15.
