Kenneth Juhasz

North Central Regional Vice President 

Regional Vice-President, Ken Juhasz is a third generation union member. His Grandfather and Great Uncles were part of the May 1934 Toledo Auto-Lite Strike that started with only 4 workers walking a picket line and ended with over 6,000 people from the community supporting their demands for bargaining rights. The strike played a major role in the creation of Federal labor laws and the creation of the UAW in 1935. His Father was a union activist for the United Steelworkers and continually reinforced the necessity to take an active role in defending injustice in the workplace.

 Ken began his career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 1998 and was elected to the position of Local Vice-President in 2012. In February of 2013 he assumed the role of Local President and began an aggressive campaign to change the culture of the Local and advocate for the working conditions in Milan, MI. Through his leadership, the local membership grew at an unprecedented rate; more than tripling in enrollment. He negotiated the Local's first Local Supplemental Agreement, represented over 60 bargaining unit employees in disciplinary actions, mitigated 2 Firearms cases, filed over a hundred grievances and Unfair Labor Practices, negotiated numerous Memorandums of Understanding, Chaired the Local Labor Management Relations Team and represented the bargaining unit nationally in several National Policy negotiations, LMR meetings and Joint Policy Committees. Ken successfully negotiated a settlement for $650K in a Timely Payment of Overtime case, filed a $2.5 Mil Overtime Bypass case and an estimated $8 Mil Portal case. Of these accomplishments, he's most proud to have been able to reinstate probationary employees the agency intended to terminate.
 
He received the "Most Improved Local Award" in 2014 and 2015, The North Central "Leadership Award" in 2015 and 2016, The "Distinguished Leadership Award" in 2016 and the "Basil McDavitt Award" at the National Convention in 2016.
