We are saddened to report the loss of IBEW Local 134 member Renia Boykin to cancer. Renia was instrumental in organizing the Court Reporters in Cook County IL. She fought tirelessly for years to win the right of the Court Reporters to seek union representation. She took on the IL Supreme Court Justices in this fight and with the help of the IL Legislature, legislation was passed that gave them that right. Renia was part of the bargaining committee that reached the first agreement. Her determination to never give up should be an inspiration to us all.
