MSU labor leader dies

heckmanWe were shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Charlie Heckman, president of AFSCME 999 and chairperson of the Coalition of Labor Organizations at MSU. He died in a single-car accident on February 23.  The CLO relies a great deal on Charlie’s skills and experience, especially during our health care bargaining.  Charlie was a good friend to labor and to CTU. We are going to miss him.

Charlie’s family will receive friends and have a service, particularly acknowledging his time in the Navy and the special recognition that brings, on Wednesday, March 2, 4-7 p.m., at Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home, 621 S Jefferson, Mason, 48854.
