Another Year Gone
Posted December 2, 2022
Brothers and Sisters,
I hope this article finds you and yours preparing for the Christmas season and the end of another year. I hope that 2022 has been a busy and productive year in both work and your personal life. Hands down this year has been the busiest of the 8 years that I have been your Business Rep. Between new members, catching up on 3 years of Member Orientation due to Covid 19, negotiations, elections for BM/ST, Business Rep, and Local Executive Board Members it has been nonstop since January 1st. As we close out this year, I wanted to remind everyone that the Annual Christmas Meeting is this Tuesday December 6th at the union hall starting at 6 pm.
During the meeting we will have a moment of silence for those brothers who passed during the year 2022. They are Brother Laughvon Bingham (5/15/22), Brother Lucas Kontes (8/28/22), and Brother Edwin “Ed” Robinson (10/10/2022). These brothers have helped us get where we are today, and we owe them a debt of gratitude. I would also like to take this time to recognize several apprentices who turned out during the past few years (2020-2022). They are Victor Galvanes, James Harris, Craig Henry, Rakesh Kumar, Sanots Martinez, Colby Rojas, Saul Santana, Christopher Smith, John Smith, and Robby Slaughter.
I would like to recognize the following member for their years of service to Local 1237.
25 Years 45 Years
