SMART Local 18 (Wisconsin) was recently honored by the Sheboygan County Labor Council as the 2023 Labor Organization of the Year, a recognition of the Local 18 SMART Army’s dedication to community service and solidarity – including participation in Habitat for Humanity projects and the donation of an HVAC system for the American Legion Post 149 in Sheboygan Falls.

“I had the privilege of accepting this award on behalf of all our members and their generous contributions to the Sheboygan County area,” said Local 18 President and Business Manager Scott Knocke. “The award was presented at the 65th annual kickoff banquet between the UAW CAP Council and the Sheboygan County Labor Council, and Governor Tony Evers was in attendance.”
