Employees mourn loss of leader

City workers are mourning the unexpected loss of labor leader and longtime employee Alva “Wally” Storm, who died Nov. 20 after a sudden illness. Storm, past president of the Stockton City Employees’ Association, was 61.

Storm is credited with the birth of today’s SCEA, the city’s largest labor union, which employees formed in 1999 after the San Joaquin Public Employees Association was dissolved.

Storm was a Stockton police dispatcher for 25 years and continued to work part-time after her retirement in 2006. She stayed active with the union, working for Joe Rose, the association’s attorney.
