• Blue Light Report - January / February 2019
    This year we will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary as a Local Union. We were chartered on November 21, 1949. I want to thank all our charter members and retired members that stuck together through good times and bad to ensure they achieved better working conditions, wages, healthcare, and a sustainable pension.

  • Blue Light Report Central - January / February
    Happy New Year to you and yours! Before we turn the calendar and look ahead to 2019, it’s important to reflect on our prosperity in 2018. Local 798 was again able to increase pension accrual rates, retirees received a 13th check, PIBF maintained the $4,000 HRA benefit, and our industry provided an abundance of work for our membership. These are a few of the many things for which we can be thankful.

    What a great time to be a 798 Pipeliner! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas because 2019 will be a very Happy New Year if you stay the course and work all you can. The 2018 work season was great, and as a member, you had the opportunity to work as much as you wanted. The choices of jobs and locations available were just unbelievable. If you work hard, the job opportunities will keep coming your way.
