June Bobich Dies;
Local 610 Secretary
For 43 Years


June Bobich, 77, retired secretary of UE Local 610, died Dec. 28, 1999.

Hired in 1945, Bobich worked for Local 610 for 43 years.

Local 610 represented several thousand employees of the Westinghouse Air Brake Co. as well as Union Switch and Signal during those years.

While working for the local union, she married George Bobich. An outstanding UE leader, George Bobich was instrumental in organizing Local 610, and held numerous offices in the local, including president. He died in 1982.

June Bobich is survived by sons Wayne Bobich and Frank Cortazzo III, daughters Gail Pristera, Marie DiNardo and Gina Leo and several grandchildren.
