Blue Light Report - January / February 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a Merry Christmas. As seasons go, to me, winter is a time for reflection and a time to prepare for the upcoming spring and summer.

Blue Light Report Dispatch - January / February 2020

First, I want to say that I hope everyone has a great new year filled with prosperity and good health for their entire family.

We have hope that the upcoming year will meet everyone’s needs; however, our work is still very dependent on permits. The building trades side still has good indicators that they will be busy and need help. As always, Stainless Welders are first, followed by Combo Welders (Heli-Arc & Up-Hill Stick), Stick Only Welders, and lastly, Fitters. The Cracker Plant through Local 449 is still hiring Welders and Spacers only. It is not uncommon for large building trades work to start this time of year, but as of this date, there has not been any word where it is located. Several of our contractors are bidding large projects in Texas. These projects are slated to begin early in 2020. Hopefully, we get some pre-jobs soon. If Dispatch can be of any help, please do not hesitate to call in.

Thank you, and again, Happy New Year.
