|We Make Connecticut Happen|
In memoriam: Thomas Pekrul
Council 4 mourns the passing of former AFSCME Local 387 President Thomas W. Pekrul, who died Dec. 28, 2012.
Tom worked for the Department of Correction for 23 years, serving the public as a Correction Officer. He was also President of AFSCME Local 387, representing the Cheshire Correctional Complex, for more than 4 years.
Tom fought tenaciously to protect and advance the rights of his co-workers at DOC, bringing prison safety concerns to the public eye
We extend our condolences to Tom's family, including his wife Sheila, a member of our AFSCME Local 1579 in Torrington, and his daughters Cameron and Morgan (also a member of Local 1579).
Contributions in Tom's memory can be made to the American Diabetes Association, 2080 Silas Deane Hwy, 2nd Floor, Rocky Hill, CT 06067.
