Creating Stronger Voices

District Council 82 brings together members in local unions to create a stronger voice for workers in the finishing trades. Our council is made up of nine local unions covering western Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana. Local unions hold regular monthly meetings where they conduct the business of the local, discuss issues in the industry, and learn what initiatives their district council is working on to protect not only their rights, but the rights of all working people.
