Jim "Cinci" Cianciolo

































Communication is one of the most important tools that Members, Stewards, and Officers of the Local Union have. That's why each Company in Local 243 has Stewards who are elected by you, the membership. The Steward is the first line of communication, and is responsible for transmitting information to your Local and representing members in union and workplace matters.


Your Business Agents are responsible for representing you in grievance processing, contract  negotiations, and various other issues. Your Local Union has two Business Agents assigned to your Company to assist you when ever the need arises. In addition, they make regular visits to your Company. So whenever you need help or have a question, please contact our office.


As an Officer of this Local Union, I take pride in the fact that we are constantly trying to train Stewards and update members through bulletin board postings and the Local 243 newsletter, The Mirror. Furthermore, your Officers and Business Agents are continually updated on changes in the law and collective bargaining strategies, to ensure that you get the very best representation possible.


Finally, Local 243's Metro Detroit and Lansing offices are open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. After 5:00 p.m., you can leave a message on our answering machine. We regularly schedule craft or division meetings on Saturdays and Sundays during the year, except June, July, and August. Special meetings are called upon request of the members. Your involvement in Local Union activities and your craft or division meetings are of great importance to this Local Union, and will bring greater dividends to you. Remember that this is your union.



So get involved and help us fight for you!



Jim Cianciolo, President
