Kevin Tischbern

LU 83 Drywall Finisher - Stockham Construction
With the help of the apprenticeship program and the mentorship of journeymen in the trade, I was able to eventually work my way into a foreman’s position and now a superintendent.  This has offered me financial growth opportunities, health care coverage for my family, and a retirement, all of which would not have been available if I had not joined the union.

LU 159 Drywall Finisher - Raymond Group
I have been with Raymond Drywall for 11 years and have been recognized as a top performer by my foreman as I continue to work my hardest. The Union has given me not only a career but a way for me to provide for my family, my wife of 15 years and my 3 children.
