This week's Spotlight features John Tronoski, a 2nd-generation USW member. Here's his story:
This week's spotlight shines on George Becker, an unwavering member of the Merck family since '94, currently excelling as a Support Associate in Department 207. George's tenure with the union dates back to the OCAW days, bearing witness to the transformation from PACE to the present-day USW. Marion Lightcap has been a guiding force in my journey as a new member and as a shop steward. What I truly value about the union is the profound opportunity it provides to champion what is just. I take great pride in my roles as a Shop Steward, contributing to Civil Rights Concerns, the Safety Team, and the USW Compliance Team. Guiding new members toward becoming steadfast union advocates brings me immense joy.

This week we are spotlighting a long term Union member Deseree Moore and here’s her story.I’ve been a union member for 38 years now. My first affiliation with a union was in 1985 with the UAW (United Auto Workers), where I worked for Ford Motor Company. In 1997, I began working at MERCK Sharp & Dohme, and I became a member of the PACE union, which is now known as the United Steelworkers (USW). What I enjoy most about being a union member is the opportunities and benefits it provides.
