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.
As you read this report, 2018 is in our rearview mirror, and 2019 is starting to unfold. I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed holiday season and is excited to start another prosperous year of pipelining. Our great Local was very blessed this past year, and the outlook for 2019 is gearing up to be nothing less. The strength and perseverance of our leadership have guided this Local to places that once seemed impossible but now has become a reality.
I would like to personally congratulate my fellow Business Agent and Brother member, Chad Gilbert, on his recent UA appointment to serve as Special Representative assigned to the Department of Pipeline and Gas Distribution. I know he will do a fantastic job and continue to fight hard to further the interests of this great profession.
Work in the South will be plentiful for 2019 with many jobs going out for bid. Although we have not been fortunate enough to acquire very many of these in the past, I feel that this is our year to make it happen and I will work diligently every day to help ensure that outcome.
I would like to remind everyone to make plans to attend our Regular Membership Meeting on January 11, 2019. We are all empowered by the knowledge gained when staying involved with what is going on in our Local and our regular meetings are a big part of that process.
Lastly, if you are having trouble contacting me, please call my cell number, 918-991-5341. As always, I look forward to hearing from you. May God bless you and your families with a healthy and prosperous year. And remember, “There is Strength in Numbers and Greater Strength in ORGANIZED Numbers.”

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.
