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 while on the road. I have recently attended the 2018 Florida Pipe Trades Conference in Palm Coast, FL, and am presently in Montgomery, AL, for the Special Convention of the Alabama AFL-CIO.
Work is still very slow in my jurisdiction, but I am diligently working to improve this situation. I have had the opportunity to talk with several contractors and hope to have them bid some upcoming work in the near future. Thanks again to all my fellow Brothers and Sisters who have taken the time to be my eyes and ears in my area. The information gained has been very valuable to our profession and is greatly appreciated.
Every member is encouraged to continue to be actively involved with our Action Network. This is an amazing way for our voices to be heard, and our way of life be recognized and valued. If at all possible, make plans to be at the September union meeting. The success of our great Local depends on active involvement from our membership.
In closing, I want to wish each one of our members safe travels to and from their work locations during this prosperous year. Remember, I am here to serve you, so please feel free to call with any questions or concerns. God bless this great Local, and God bless each one of you.

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.
