Funeral Arrangements For Christian Riley Garcia

by CWA LOCAL 6171 on 05/23/18

Everyone please share. Arrangements are listed below.
Christian Riley Garcia, age 15, of Crosby and Santa Fe, went home to be with the Lord on Friday May 18, 2018.  He was born January 8, 2003 in Baytown, TX. His hobbies included football, basketball, music, hunting and fishing. He felt his purpose was to enlist when he came of age. We find comfort in knowing that he achieved what he felt was his calling to serve. On Friday morning he showed bravery far beyond his years. He took it upon himself to get everyone out first, making himself last. His friend said he didn’t think twice, he knew what to do. He held his ground and held the door to give others a chance to get out. He was a HERO, he is our HERO. The Lord tells us, Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends - John 15:13. He has gone home so we know he achieved his God given work on Earth. And we know he will hear “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
Preceded in death by his “Pappy” Christopher Price; Great-grandmother, Alice Bradshaw.
Survived by parents Shannan and DJ Claussen and Robert Garcia; Sister, Cadence Claussen; Grandparents, Barbara Price, Darryl and Beverly Claussen, and Cynthia Buckles; Great- grandparents, Jake and Thelma Slot, Henry and Betty Claussen, Robert and Toni Garcia; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Frontier Bargaining Report #4

The Union and the Company met in full session today where the Union passed 2 more proposals. The company did not have anything for us today. They are still working to answer our information requests we gave them yesterday. We are still assessing several of the company's proposals.

We will meet with the company again tomorrow morning.  We will then resume bargaining on June 18 2018. The Bargaining Committee will not be answering questions from the membership on what has taken place at the bargaining table.

Your bargaining committee appreciates the mobilization activities and pictures of the members in red shirts.

In unity
