Lead Activist Spotlight: Mitchell Deachin
There’s a brand new Next Gen Lead Activist in District 4, and his name is Mitchell Deachin. Mitchell is a veteran AT&T employee who joined the successful organizing campaign at the company’s IHX department in 2021 and is now a chief union steward in Local 4008 in Southfield, Michigan.
Mitchell comes from a long line of dedicated labor union members, including parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. His father is still a union welder at Ford, while most of the family got their union cards at AT&T.
Mitchell says he is eager to broaden his horizons and connect with more young workers as a Next Gen Lead. “I want to get out and learn a lot more about our community of workers and the men and women who are leading the movement.”
Welcome to the Next Gen community, Mitchell!
