Cherokee Union Organizer Eddie Carroll leads Redwood District Council.
Robin's grandfather Eddie Carroll grew up on the Cherokee Indian reservation in Oklahoma and moved out west to Humboldt and raised a family. He became a union boss for the Redwood District Council (RDC) in 1960 and stressed organizing. He grew the RDC to 4,100 workers in 1961! I doubt there are that many forest industry jobs total now. Lots of union history here in Humboldt County. I thank God I have been able to be a union member. Especially next month as a I start to collect on my union pensions!
