Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I have dedicated my report to only one subject because I, along with Justin and the rest of my staff, agree it is the most value we can provide the clients. And we need to continue to capitalize on it now while the opportunity is at hand.
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.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I hope everyone’s year has gotten off to a good start. At the time of this writing, union contractors have picked up three more jobs in Texas under the Market Recovery package. This is great news, and we anticipate more to come.
At the moment, work is slow at every level. In dispatch, we are diligently looking for work with other local unions by making phone calls every day.
