Thank you to Paul Diaz Union Organizer from IW Local 29 in Portland, Oregon and founder/ host of Chasing the Hook Podcast for taking the time to sit with the ULA Network. Paul shared his background history and experience as an Organizer, how he started in the profession, and what led him to start Chasing the Hook Podcast.
We discussed EAP programs (employee assistance programs) and the benefits of being a Union Ironworker. With September being Suicide prevention month, we also spoke on ways to obtain support and work with your brother and sister members to help support each other in times of need. His platform provides inspirational stories and works to educate others on the history within the IW trade. His Instagram highlights members in the field showcasing there skills, current and historic development sites & member interviews. Paul looks to collaborate with link-minded individuals working to inspire and support others giving back to his local and promoting union career opportunities.
