Woman wins key electrical union post.

Delegates to the United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers (UE) convention elected Amy R. Newll as secretary-treasurer, succeeding Boris Block, who retired. She defeated Charles Lowell, a union international respresentative from New England. Newell joined the union in the early 1970's and, after becoming a staff member in 1974, participated in several organizing and contract negotiation drives. She joins union president James M. Kane and organizing director John Hovis, who were re-elected.

Other women union leaders are Colleen Dewhurst, president of Actors' Equity, Linda Puchala, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, and Mary Futrell, president of the National Education Association.
