BLE honors 30-year employee Linda Thomson upon retirement

BLE International President Don M. Hahs and the officers and staff of the International Division honored staff member Linda Thomson, who retired on March 26 after 30 years of service to the Brotherhood.

She has worked in various capacities with the BLE, including Director of Personnel and her current position in the Tax Compliance Department. For many years, Thomson has been in charge of the division elections and health and welfare benefits. She began her career at the BLE in July 1973.

During her retirement, she plans to visit her two sons and their families in Arizona and Texas. She also enjoys working outdoors and playing golf. While she is looking forward to retirement, she says that it will be an adjustment.

"Linda will be missed by the officers and staff of the International Division, and by all of the members whom she has come into contact with over the years," President Hahs said.

She was presented with a commemorative clock by President Hahs and was given a plaque and a clock by Director of Compliance Dr. Elaine Reese.
