Bluelight Mid Atlantic - July 2017

I am writing this report from home. The work, as you know, is great. We are having a hard time filling some of these jobs, so I encourage you, if you aren’t already working, to apply for jobs on the Job Line. We need everyone’s help in manning these jobs because if we don’t man the work, the non-union will. Let’s not let the non-union get any stronger than they already are. The work in my area is manned up for now, but I am still sending in a few hands on the special agreement work.

I want to thank everyone for the good job they are doing. This work season is just now coming in and most are working or have been offered work. We still have a lot of work to do this year and several large projects coming up for 2018. I have a few larger projects that should be coming up for bids in late June and July.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the field soon. I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous year. We are now working under our new agreement so be sure to read it because there are a few changes. It is everyone’s job to make sure our work is protected and our agreement is followed.
