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.
I am writing this report after returning home from the UA Officers Seminar in Denver. Thanks to General President McManus and his staff for putting on a great learning event.
The September Membership Meeting was a big hit also; we had a good turnout for September. Danny and Justin did an outstanding job providing information regarding the state of the Union. Danny said the work outlook is good, but we must advocate for our jobs on the Action Network. Our voices are being heard, so I encourage you to sign up now if you aren’t involved on this network. Help us get these jobs permitted because this work is your future employment.
The work in my area is slow for now, but FERC has released the permits to go forward with the Atlantic Coast project. I’m hoping to get the North Carolina jobs with Price Gregory and Rockford pre-jobbed soon, but as everyone is aware, both North and South Carolina are in disaster mode due to Hurricane Florence. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this storm. Hopefully, the water will go down soon, and you can get back to your normal way of life.
I’m hopeful the work will pick up in North Carolina when the water goes down. If I can be of help, don’t hesitate to call.

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.
