GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN
Craig was never afraid to speak on behalf of others silenced by the institutional oppression at University of Maryland. He sounded the battlecry for social justice throughout the local and inspired many to action, including myself.
After Craig began working in the UMCP Grounds Department he was soon elected to be the Chief Shop Steward of the local union. In that capacity he not only represented university workers in grievances, he organized picket lines for safe working conditions, circulated petitions to win fair treatment, testified in Annapolis for higher wages and participated in the campaign to win collective bargaining for university and state employees.
Craig’s activism, tenacity, strategic thinking and political determination will surely be missed.
