UWUA Local 369 President Craig A. Pinkham represents Utility union at Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia

Craig A. Pinkham of Dorchester, President of the Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 369, which represents more than 3000 energy professionals throughout Massachusetts, recently represented the Local at the Democratic National Convention held in Philadelphia.

 

Pinkham, who oversees one of the largest labor unions in the state, said that he was pleased to see the Democratic National Convention so strongly represented by labor, and to see them adopt a platform that supports the efforts of labor across the country. “This will be an important election where a number of issues will be decided,” he said, adding, “We are pleased to see the efforts of labor respected and valued at a national gathering such as this and we know the party is hard at work to see that pro-labor candidates across the country are elected this fall.”

 

Pinkham is in his first full term as President of the 3000-member union; he first became Acting President of UWUA Local 369 following the resignation of Dan Hurley, who left to take a position with UWUA’s national organization.

 

Pinkham’s tenure with the union dates to 2001. The Quincy, MA native graduated from Suffolk University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. His initial work with the union began with an internship at Boston Edison during his college days, where he worked in the billing department and was a Customer service Associate for UWUA Local 369.

 

Following his work in the billing department, he transferred to be an underground line worker in 2003, working out of the Massachusetts Avenue, Dorchester facility. From there he went into the Emergency Center of NStar.

 

In addition to being President of Local 369, he serves on the National Utility Workers Union of America Executive Board, and is Treasurer on the Board of Directors for Members Plus Credit Union. In May 2013, he was inducted into the Suffolk University Hall of Fame alongside his 2000 Baseball team. He still enjoys playing hockey and softball on the Local 369 club teams.

 

Pinkham lives in the Neponset section of Dorchester. He and his wife Deirdre, a Boston police officer, are parents to four daughters: Emma, Nola, Aine, and Fiona.
