From the Business Manager

Dear Brothers and Sisters: 

 

We have been active with the Building Trades and the IBEW in regards to our Non-Union competitors falsely classifying their workers in an effort to pay lower wages to their workers. This directly effects our union contractors and our members because the Non-Union companies can be awarded projects due to utilizing lower wage scales. Please look at the attached email below from the Building Trades. Your involvement is very important.

 

Fraternally,

The Business Office

Local #10 at the National Building Museum

On Saturday, October 13, 2018, from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm, The National Building Museum will be holding their Annual Community Day.  Local #10 has been a part of bringing our trade to this family themed day and showing moms, dads, and, most of all, the children how our trade works.  Jimmy Demmel, with Elevator Industry Work Preservation Fund (EIWPF) is looking for members who would be interested in helping at the IUEC booth on this day.  He will be setting up an interactive display that attendees will be able to get involved with and ask any questions they may have.  You can call Tammie, at the Union Hall, to sign up to help.  Jimmy will then contact you about meeting and going down to the museum to set up.  Jimmy also has a limited number of admission tickets available on a first come first serve basis.  This would be a great opportunity for your children to see, first hand, how parts of an elevator work.  They could see exactly what daddy/mommy does as part of their career and ask any questions they may have been curious about.  The Big Build introduces kids and adults to a wide range of building skills, while educating them in planning, creating, constructing, and improving the places where we live, work and play.  Please contact Tammie if you would like to get involved.  The National Building Museum Big Build Flyer is attached below so you can print it out if you would like to have it.

Annual Fall Blood Drive

Here I am again, asking for all who can to come to the Annual Fall Blood Drive to help the American Red Cross.  We will be having our Fall Drive on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  These drives are near and dear to my heart.  Not only do I have a very close family member under going chemo therapy, I also have family members who have been lucky enough to not have surgery rescheduled because there was not enough blood supply.  There have been surgeries, in our area, that had to be rescheduled because they did not have enough blood for stand by.  I would hate to be a family member who took their loved one for surgery just to turn around and take them back home.  That is very hard on a patient, mentally and physically.  We are in a very dangerous field and we never know when one of our brothers or sisters may need blood.  Please consider coming out and helping family, friends, co-workers and community members who may need blood.

I hope to go over our number of 26 donations from the Spring Drive.  26 is nothing when you consider that we have 1204 members.  Please help.  To schedule an appointment you can go on line to www.redcrossblood.org or call Tammie at the Union Hall.

IUEC Local #10 at Labor Night with the Nationals

Thank you, to Mike and Rose Herrity, for the great pictures of Local #10 "representing" at the Labor Night with the Nationals.  It was really great to see so many Local #10 members, current and retired, attend the game.  Looks like everyone had a great time.  I know the tickets, we had in the office, went really fast.  This outing supports the Community Service Agency Emergency Assistance Fund for the AFL-CIO.  This fund helps Union members, from all local Unions, when in need.  If they are laid off, and need help with bills, food, housing, etc this fund helps them out.  It is a good program to support and we here at Local #10 try to help when ever we can.

I am sure there will be tickets again next year and I hope those that did not attend this year will join in the fun next year.

New Song from Spudwrench

I got a really nice email from the band thanking us for putting their music out there for our members.  I am more than happy to help out Union Brothers.  Here is the latest song put out June 16, 2018.  Watch for the album.  I think these guys need to talk to our own Jesse Hanbury.  A song from the two would be AWESOME!!  If you like the song, go and download to help out the band.

Thanks guys, keep up the great song writing.

Until we meet again...

I really dislike this part of my job.  It is with great sorrow that I inform the membership of the passing of Honorary Brother Ralph (Randy) Dollarhyde on June 6, 2018.  The Officers and Members may call at the Moser Funeral Home, 233 Broadview Avenue, Warrenton, VA 20186 where a memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 16th at 3:30 pm.  I had the pleasure of working with Randy for a number of years.  He was one of the nicest men I have ever met and I don't think he ever met anyone he did not like.  Randy had just retired the 1st of January, but had to under go a heart transplant.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Dollarhyde family at this time of sorrow.  Until we meet again, Brother, may you rest in peace.

Words of Wisdom

 THE ONLY WAY TO DO GREAT WORK IS TO LOVE WHAT YOU DO.  IF YOU HAVEN'T FOUND IT YET, KEEP LOOKING.  DON'T SETTLE.
