I would like to start by expressing my enthusiasm for the outstanding turnout for our January Regular Membership Meeting. It was truly overwhelming to see how many new members and first-timers that were in attendance. It is always a pleasure to meet new members and be able to listen to any concerns that you may have. All of you are our future, and our future is looking very bright.
Secondly, I know that most jobs have not kicked off yet but try to be patient. Work this year could be just as good, if not better than last year. Work in the South is still looking promising for mid-year. It appears that we finally have union contractors interested in the work going on in the South.
Please continue to be diligently participating on the 798 Action Network. It is vital for our future that EVERY member participates. Our action page is the best avenue to accomplish our goals. As we all know, the “squeaky wheel gets the grease,” so let’s be louder than our opposition! Our Action Network has proven itself to be a valuable resource in letting our legislators know how passionate and dedicated we all are about the work that we do.
If you have not already made plans to attend this year’s Steward School, make those reservations now. It is the best chance for you to participate, learn important working details of this profession, and make valuable job contacts. To all our new members: 798 is a family and is family oriented, make plans to bring your family with you. There will be activities for them while you are attending the school. I look forward to seeing you and your family there.
In closing, remember that I am here to serve you, so do not hesitate to call me at 918-991-5341. God bless each one of you and God bless Local Union 798! And remember that there is always Strength in numbers and Greater Strength in ORGANIZED numbers.
