Blue Light Report - November / December 2018

Fall is in the air, and by the time this report reaches you, many of the places that we are working in will be downright frigid. 2018 has turned out to be another banner year. We have had some challenges with permits pulled on projects that had already begun construction.

Blue Light Mid Atlantic - March / April 2018

I am writing this report after returning home from the Tennessee Pipe Trades in East TN. It was a very informative meeting and it was enjoyable getting to meet with the business managers and agents from various locals around the area. I also had a good visit with those who attended Local 798’s January membership meeting. Danny had a great message to present to the membership, as well as highlighting upcoming work that will brighten our future. Congratulations to Justin Wallace for being successful in the recent election as Financial Secretary-Treasurer. I’m looking forward to working with him as I’m sure he will serve our Local in a successful and professional manner.

The work in my area is still slow for now. The winter has been hard and has influenced some of the work getting started. It looks like the Atlantic Coast Pipeline will get started by early spring. There will be plenty of work this year, so if you are needing to improve your skill sets, now is a good time to go to the Training Center and brush up.

Steward School is just around the corner. I hope you are making plans to attend. It is sure to be an educational, as well as a fun event. I hope to see you on the ROW soon. If I can be of help, don’t hesitate to call.

    We are about to wrap up another year of prosperity for Local 798 members.  I hope everyone has been able to take advantage of the amount of work we’ve been blessed with again this year.  We recently had our regular September membership meeting.  It is always good to see everyone that’s able to make it to Tulsa.
