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.

The 2019 Steward School has just concluded, and what a great event it turned out to be. It is impossible to put into words all that transpired for the week, but I will try to give you a brief snapshot of what happened.
Steward School 2019 just wrapped up, and what a week it was! We had a great turnout, and it was good to see a lot of old friends and meet several new ones.
All is well for those who are ready to conduct their business like professionals. Coming by the work is not going to be as easy as last year. But there is work out there. Here in Dispatch, we are willing to do everything we can to help.
