She has served as a Vice President for the Eastern Region of the union. In addition to that she has also served on the contract negotiation team. Beyond that she helped organize and serve on the Labor Management Committee at her facility. She supports her co-workers and union daily, often getting other co-workers and nurses in her facility involved in union activity. With all she does, Karen Heppner is a clear example of a woman leading in labor and we are honored to have her a part of AFT Healthcare-Maryland, AFT-Maryland, and the larger labor family.
