District 13 mourns loss of former Director Mickey Breaux

Mickey Breaux graduated from Thomas Jefferson high school in 1964, attended Lamar University, served in the United States Army as a safety man, and was a representative of his local union at Fina refinery before accepting a position as a international representative for The Oil Chemical and Atomic Workers International Union, which became PACE in 1999 then merged with the USW in 2005. He was elected as Director of District 13 and retired in 2014.

We will miss his integrity, his wit, and his larger-than-life personality.
