Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class
GRAND RAPIDS May 13– Judith Strickland, a proud member of Teamsters Local 406, went to work at Bimbo Bakeries (known then as Mueller’s Oven Fresh) at age 18 in 1962. Amazingly, during those 50 years she was able to maintain an accident-free record at Bimbo.
A favorite memory of Local 406 for Judith was when she received a book loaded with Teamster pictures and the history of Teamsters dating back to the beginning of the union in 1903.
Asked what she’ll do now that she’s retired, Judith said, “Definitely not sit in front of the TV. I’ll be working in my garden, planting flowers and traveling to Florida.”
The Kent-Ionia Labor Council wishes Judith a happy and healthy retirement.
