Blue Light Report - September / October 2019

I want to thank everyone for their calls and letters of condolences concerning my father, Doyle Hendrix, on his passing. I was truly blessed to have him for 82 years and to have him as a mentor my whole life. His face and voice will be with me for as long as I live. I am grateful for that and grateful for the outpouring of sympathy from the membership.

    The current number of members on the out-of-work list is as follows: Welders – 1,287; Journeyman – 207; and Helpers – 1,655. The out-of-work numbers do not reflect the members who are working building trades and still on the out-of-work list.
  • Blue Light Report Benefits Update - September / October 2019
    401(k) Plan  We frequently are asked about taking a loan against a member’s 401(k) balance.  The Pipeline Industry 401(k) Plan does not allow participant loans.  401(k) loan repayment must be set up as a deduction from payroll.  Due to the nature of the construction industry, working for different contractors for various time frames doesn’t allow for consistent repayment of the loan, which would cause the loan to be in default.
