Ricky was hired in 1999 and has worked at ExxonMobil at the Lubes Control Center in the Dewaxing Section. He has served as Steward in Dewaxing, was on the 2003 & 2010 Negotiations Committee, 2011 Clerical Negotiations, has severed on the Job Security Committee and Permit Consolidation Team, on the Worker Permit Advisory Group, served on the L.P.S. Core Team and the O.P.E. Core Team/Trainer. Ricky has also served on the Union’s Finance Committee and as Process Vice President. In May of 2010 Ricky was appointed to fill Ken Evans’ position as Union President where he gladly serves today.
Ricky’s goals for the Union are to be a part of making a change for the better in regards to our overall working environment. A key issue on this path includes but not limited to adding job security language to our contract. He would like to see us put together a grievance system that is effective and can get issues resolved at the lowest level. Ricky is a Union Advocate, but more importantly he is an Employee Advocate. Ricky believes that working for and with the people gives the Union the knowledge necessary to mobilize and pursue better working conditions which will enhance the quality of people’s life, which enhances the communities in which we work and live in and raise our families in, thus enhancing the America that labor built. Labor and the labor movement is a vital part of our history and it is Ricky’s goal to bring this way of thinking and moving out of the history books and into the 21st Century so that the workers who follow behind after our careers are complete have the same or better opportunities.
His personal goals are to become more educated on past labor issues here in Baytown. He wants to learn and become well versed in the strategies used by Unions to represent all members in a exemplarily and consistent manner. Ricky wants to continue to work within our union to achieve our goals while also gaining the respect of all his peers. Ricky’s belief is that as a Union we have 3 critical questions to ask prior to every decision. 1) Are we protecting and/or giving up on something those before us fought for an rightfully won? 2) Are we addressing the issues of the current membership and are those concerns and issue reflective of the majority? 3) Are we creating a better future for the workers that come to work after we retire?
Ricky has been married to his beautiful wife Stephanie for 30 years. They have three great kids, Taylor (daughter) age 27, Cole (son) age 26 and Hannah age 16.
