I am writing this report while on the road doing a few job visits. By the time you read this report, everyone who wants to work should be on a job somewhere. Hopefully, everyone arrived at their destinations safely and is settling down in their new locations.
I have heard several complaints about the number of books being sold. A friendly reminder about our contract - we are required to man our work. That means every time a member passes up the opportunity to take a job, there is a non-book hand waiting to take advantage of the situation. And for them, we are grateful and look forward to them becoming part of our 798 family.
Please take the time to advocate for our work by signing in and participating in the Action Network. There is an EXTREMELY long list of members in my jurisdiction who are not participating. Now that I have the list, don’t be surprised when you receive a phone call from me. We must be diligent in our pursuit of future work opportunities.
In closing, remember that I am here to serve you, so do not hesitate to call. God bless each and every one of you, and God bless this great Local.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a Merry Christmas. As seasons go, to me, winter is a time for reflection and a time to prepare for the upcoming spring and summer.
Dear Brothers and Sisters, I hope that each one of you was able to spend some time with your families and enjoy the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
First, I want to say that I hope everyone has a great new year filled with prosperity and good health for their entire family.
