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 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.

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.
