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.
By the time you read this report, you should have already received your election ballot in the mail. So, take the time to fill it out and get it returned. It was great seeing all the participation in the nominations process, and I encourage all our membership to make sure to participate in the voting process as well. It is always a pleasure to visit with everyone at our meetings. It was amazing to see all the passion and pride expressed by our membership at our September meeting.
Work is still very slow in my jurisdiction. I wish I had a more positive outlook to share, but for now that is about as honest as it gets. I appreciate all of you that have contacted me for work. Although I could not help you at the time, I enjoyed getting the opportunity to visit with you one-on-one.
Please remember that there is still plenty of building trades work out there to keep a person busy, pick up the phone, and call dispatch. Our work ethic and attitude are a direct reflection on our local as a whole, so be mindful at all times that we are a brotherhood of excellence.
I hope everyone will make plans to attend the December meeting. Our meetings are the best opportunity to gain knowledge, share opinions and ideas, and socialize with fellow Brothers and Sisters.
In closing, remember that I am here to serve YOU, so do not hesitate to call me at 918-991-5341. I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas. May your families be blessed with good health and an abundance of love. God bless each one of you, and God bless this great Local.

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.
