On February 26, 2007, we lost brother Antonio “Tony” Sanchez. Tony began his career as a Cement Mason in October 1977 when he joined Local 627. Tony was elected Business Representative of Local 600 in 1998 and proudly represented our membership until his untimely passing. Tony worked effectively signing up new members and many new contractors growing our union. He served as a member of the Negotiating Committee and a Trust Fund Trustee.
