Local 111-ICW
Honors Kern

Wayne Filchner and George Kern  

A member of UE Local 128 at the (now closed) Allentown, Pa. General Electric plant for almost 15 years, George Kern found work at Gardner Cryogenics/Air Products and Chemicals as middle-shift maintenance man. When the Independent Cryogenics Workers union was considering affiliation with UE, Brother Kern was among those consulted. He spoke highly of UE’s democratic ideals and character; ICW affiliated with UE in February 1993. On his last day of work, July 2, the members of UE Local 111-ICW presented Brother Kern with an engraved retirement clock and a card signed by all. ‘He is a fine unionist and his experience will be missed,’ commented Local Pres. Duane Yaindl. In the photo, Middle-Shift Steward Wayne Filchner (left) presents George Kern with his clock.
