Local 21 Remembers Port of Oakland Leader, Skip Conrad

Local 21 was saddened to hear about the passing of the Port of Oakland Chapter’s newly elected chapter President, Marcel “Skip” Conrad III (1948 - 2012). Skip lost his courageous battle to pancreatic cancer on Saturday, February 4, 2012. Local 21 extends our condolences to the Conrad family as we honor his valuable leadership and contributions.

Skip began the year with an inspiring vision to work together with the Port and negotiate a favorable, long-term contract. He believed strongly in fighting for members’ rights and preserving their benefits.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in Skip’s memory. His wife, Vanessa, extends her gratitude in advance for any donations.
