My name if James Rutten.  I have worked for Cub Foods and a member of local 22 for over 27 years.  I started in the bakery as bakery clean team.  I have worked as clean up, fryer, baker, and floor supervisor while pursuing a degree in accounting.  After graduation, I decided to stay in the bakery and eventually held the positions of assistant bakery manager and bakery manager.

 

I was encouraged to participate on a negotiating committee, and did so a few times, and it was a great experience.  In 2007, I was asked if I would be willing to serve our Union as a trustee. I started my first audit of the Union’s books in October, 2007.   I continued to serve as a trustee until the next step came when I ran for the Financial / Recording Secretary position.  I am excited to have this opportunity to serve and represent our Union members.

 

In Solidarity,
