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 hope everyone will arrange to attend the September Union Meeting. Remember this is an election year, and nominations will be accepted at this meeting. There will be many highly qualified members running for all the different offices, and it is up to the entire membership to participate in the voting process. The success of our great local depends on it!
Work is still slow in my jurisdiction, but I am diligently working to improve this situation. I have had the opportunity to speak with several contractors and hope to have them bid some upcoming work. I hope every member is taking advantage of all the Building Trades work that is available. If not, call dispatch, and see what is available.
Thanks again to all my fellow Brothers and Sisters who took the time to be my eyes and ears in my area. The information gained has been very valuable to our profession and is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, I am hearing about quite a few union hands working on nonunion jobs, and this is entirely UNACCEPTABLE! When you sign up with this local, you agree to a way of life that holds very high standards; a work ethic that is second to none; and loyalty to your fellow Brothers and Sisters of this local.
Every member is encouraged to continue to be actively involved with our Action Network. Your activity is an amazing way for our voices to be heard, and for our way of life to be recognized and valued. Please take the time to encourage all your family members to get involved also. There is always strength in numbers.
In closing, I want to wish each one of our member’s safe travels to and from their work locations. Remember I am here to serve YOU, so please feel free to call with any questions or concerns, 918-991-5341. God bless this great local, and God bless each one of 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.
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.
