Letter from IUEC Safety Director

Brothers and Sisters,

OSHA has just issued COVID-19 guidance for the construction industry.  This guidance closely mirrors the requirements in the NABTU/CPWR standards adopted by the Governing Board of The American Building Trades Unions (NABTU) last month with your input, which CPWR used to produce and present the CPWR/COVID-19 Awareness Training.  Although the guidance falls short on explicitly requiring respirators when workers are within six feet of other workers or civilians, it very clearly infers that employers need to assess hazards and comply with 1910.134.

The link, for this guidance, is under the ACTION CENTER to the left on this website.

Thank you for continuing your efforts in order to protect your members during this pandemic.  Please continue to enforce ont he job Safety and make sure your members recognize the daily Safety hazards that are always present during their work day.

Thank you and work safe,

Mike Langer, IUEC Director of Safety

A note from the Local President

Brothers and Sisters,

Due to the Corona Virus outbreak, and the State of Maryland limitation on the number of people that can gather together, we will be Cancelling our annual picnic.  I want to apologize for this.  I know that this event is something many members, and their families, look forward to every year.  We are not willing to take the chance of any of our members, active or retired, or their families being exposed to this Virus.  We will check and see if Camp Letts will be available at a later date, but for the present time, our Picnic is cancelled.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me, 301-459-497, extension 17.

One of our own

Alot of the brothers and sisters out there know Brother Dylan Smith.  Alot do not.  He is quiet and kinda stand offish, until you get to know him.  What a great kid.  He is a hard worker, comes to work everyday, and gives it his all.  In the last 4 years Dylan has been in the battle of his life.  You see, Dylan has a rare type of brain cancer.  In May of 2016 he got the word from doctors.  He was out of work from May of 2016 to September of 2018.  He came back to work and had a relapse in December of 2019.  He was out again until February of 2020.  I am sorry to say that Dylan has had another relapse.  He has been out of work since March 2020.  He has some amazing things going on to try and slow this monster down, but most of the research and testing is done in Germany.  Some of Dylans family, friends, and co workers (here and with the fire dept) have set up a Go Fund Me to help with the cost of all that Dylan has to go thru.  Now, I know what you are saying, "He has good insurance with the Union", and that is correct, but there are some things that are not covered by insurance and we don't want Dylan to have to struggle with anything other than getting better.  We are in hard times right now and I know alot of you have been cut on your hours or fully furloughed, so we would only want you to donate if you can and want to.

Thank you to everyone who has and will donate to help this wonderful young man.  He goes to Hopkins everyday for treatment and  awaits for word from Germany.  We are cheering you on Dylan.  We got your back and we know that you are a fighter so go knock this thing OUT!!!

Message from IUEC Safety Director

Brothers and Sisters,

It is with great regret to inform you that there was an On the Job Fatality late yesterday afternoon, April 27th, in Local 63, Oklahoma City, Ok.  The 2nd year apprentice, Brother Taylor Lewis, 26 years old, was working as an apprentice for Thyssenkrupp Elevator Company on a construction job with his mechanic.  The mechanic went to his vehicle and upon his return, found Brother Lewis unresponsive in the pit.  Brother Lewis was not married and has no children.  No other details are available as the investigation is ongoing.  Please keep Brother Lewis and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you and work safe,

Mike Langer - IUEC Director of Safety

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters of Local #63 as well as Brother Lewis's family and friends.  RIP Brother.  Until we meet again.
