Blue Light Report - March / April 2020

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.

Blue Light Report Dispatch - March / April 2020

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.

Many of our building trades locals have some work, but they do not have the overflow to look at sending out travelers. Some do have work coming, and we will be on top of it as it begins. Also, 798 has work coming, and it looks like a large portion will be high scale work. Read the Business Agent reports for more information.

Welders, please be prepared when you start your work year, especially if you have been off for quite some time. Do not think you will be able to show up and pass a test. We have had many members go out on our work after a long sit on the wheel, and either their machine or their arm and eyes are not ready. Please be prepared and check your equipment before you get to the job site when everything is on the line. Local 798 provides the best in pipeline skills, and we should be prepared.

Call dispatch if we can be of any assistance. Thank you.

    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.
