Letter Carrier Charboneau to lead Vermont State Labor Council

MONTPELIER, Vt.—Veteran Letter Carrier Jill Charboneau, who got her union activism start by bringing NALC’s “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive to Vermont, has been elected president of the state labor council, the council and Vermont’s NALC association said.

Charboneau, who retired from the Postal Service in 2014 after 31 years as a Letter Carrier, becomes one of a handful of female state federation leaders nationwide.

A native of North Ferrisburgh, Vt., and one of 11 children, Charboneau brought the ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ drive to Vermont in 1991, her bio on the state fed’s website says. She still serves as its Vermont coordinator. This year’s drive was held on May 13.
