Casteel, McInroy, Dutcher and Keatts visit MMNA Facility

UAW International Secretary Treasurer Gary Casteel, his top Administrative Assistant Frank Keatts, Region 4 Director Ron McInroy and Region 4 Assistant Director Brad Dutcher spent their St Patrick's Day morning touring the MMNA plant floor.

The black mother of two lives about a 20-minute drive from the iconic bridge, which is named in honor of a Reconstruction-era Alabama Ku Klux Klan leader and U.S. senator and is the spot where demonstrators were set upon by police in an event that's come to be known as Bloody Sunday...
