Tech-savvy Guild leader Russ Cain was the union’s main database expert and one-man help desk for years. When he died recently, staff members wondered how they could possibly manage without him.
My enduring memory of Russ doesn’t directly relate to the decades of Guild service he rendered as an organizer, local president, or international vice president.
