Your Collective Bargaining Agreement

With Special Thanks to Frank Hupp

We at Rural Development find Frank Hupp to be invaluable.  Frank never turns us down when we ask for assistance and is a wealth of knowledge, in which we have had the privilege of gleaming from regarding the Union.  During our interest based contract negotiations this year, Frank experienced a light stroke.  But during that time he never missed an appointment with us, to work on the contract.  Frank is such a encouraging person and has earned the trust of us here at Rural Development both bargaining base employees and management.

Thanks Frank!
