The January meeting was great, and the turnout was impressive. It was good to see so many of you take the time to come and show your support for your Local Union even though the weather could have been better.
Danny and Justin did a good job informing everyone about what has been going on with our Union. If you were unable to attend, you missed a good meeting. Danny stressed how important the Action Network is in helping to secure future work for all of us. If you aren’t signing the petitions, I want to encourage you to do so. Our jobs and our future depend on it!
The work outlook in my area is slow for now between the weather and the permit situation. Several good jobs are getting postponed due to permits. That is all the more reason we should be advocating for our work.
Steward School is just around the corner, and I hope everyone who can is making plans to attend. It will be a learning experience, but there are also plenty of opportunities for fun and fellowship scheduled throughout the week. The Ladies of 798 will be holding several drawings as well as the basket auction. I would like to encourage everyone to get involved in these events. All the money raised goes to well-deserved charities. I hope to see you there.
The work season is almost here, and I hope to see you on the ROW soon. If I can be of help, don’t hesitate to call.

The 2019 Steward School has just concluded, and what a great event it turned out to be. It is impossible to put into words all that transpired for the week, but I will try to give you a brief snapshot of what happened.
