Years of Service Pins

It has been brought to our attention that there was a mishap with the letter regarding the Years of Service pins.  Just so everyone is aware, the pins will be given out at the October 10, 2019 meeting.  If you are unable to make the meeting and are supposed to get a Service Pin, please call the Union Hall and we can mail your pin to you.  If you would like to stop by and pick it up, that would be ok as well.  We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Educational Pre-Retirement meeting

Local #10 will be hosting a retirement seminar with Mass Mutual on Saturday, October 5, 2019.  If you would like to attend, please follow the link on the flyer to sign up.  The link for the Group Meeting is https://live.vcita.com/site/tdht5ibmyd3o2qha/online-scheduling?service=6zd70jg5a91hfh0j

Fraternally,

The Business Office.

Friendly Reminder

Just a reminder for all of our DC Elevator Mechanic License holders.  DCOPLA has now sent out the renewal reminders for all license holders.  You have from now until November 30, 2019 to renew your license with no penalty.  If you are late, December 1 - January 31, 2020, you will be accessed a $50.00 late fee.  If you wait until February 1st or after you will have to reinstate, which will cost you $375.00.  If you do not renew/reinstate your license within 5 years, you will have to start all over from the beginning as if you never had a license.  All of that being said, be good boys and girls and get this taken care of, please!  You do not want to pay a $2,000.00 fine if you get caught working, without a license, in the District of Columbia.

Those that need my assistance, please just call me before you come to the Hall.  I help a great number of people and letting me know when you are coming will hopefully cut down on your wait time.

PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!!!  WE HAVE 3 MONTHS TO GET THESE DONE WITH NO PENALTY, SO LETS START AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, PLEASE!

Maryland IUEC Member stalks British Columbia Bruins

I got an article this morning that I thought the Brothers and Sisters might be interested to read.  Seems our own Brother Gordie Ingram went on a little hunt with the Sportsmen Alliance group not too long ago.  Brother Ingram went to British Columbia with USA's Brotherhood Outdoors TV to try and get a trophy black bear.  His adventures were filmed for the television series "Brotherhood Outdoors" airing on the Sportsman Channel on Tuesday August 13th at 4 pm.  If you miss the airing on Tuesday, you can catch a reairing on Wednesday at 11:30 am, Saturday at 1:30 am, or Sunday at 11 am, all Eastern time.  I have also attached, below this article, the article done in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

It does not say if Gordie got his trophy, but if you watch the program I am sure you will find out for sure.  Congrats to Gordie and I hope his trip was all he hoped it would be.  I put a couple of pictures in the photo gallery that were sent to me as well.

Time for the Fall Blood Drive

Fall is appoarching quickly, and in the Fall we do our Fall Blood Drive.  Thursday, September 5, 2019, 1 pm to 6 pm will be the day for our Fall Drive.  We would love to see as many Elevator Constructors as possible come out and help get the blood levels up for the American Red Cross.  We work in a very dangerous trade and I would hate to think that if one of our brothers or sisters was injured they would not have the blood supply to help them in their time of need.  It does not take very long.  From start to finish it should only take about one hour of your time.  In one hour you can help save the lives of 3 people.  That is an amazing thing, if you stop and think about it.  One person, one hour, 3 lives.  WOW!!!  That would have to make you a HERO!!!  A hero is exactly what you would be to someone who is waiting for a blood transfusion and has not been able to get one because the blood levels were too low in the hospital they are in.  Come join us on September 5th be someones HERO!!

You can go on line to schedule an appointment or you can call Tammie at the Hall and she would be happy to sign you up.

Help Wanted and Needed

ATTENTION YOUR ACTION IS REQUIRED

The Department of Labor (DOL) has released their proposed rule to expand apprenticeship programs through an Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Program (IRAP).  The proposal allows an apprenticeship that does not have to go through the process of registering and maintaining accountability to the federal or state DOL.  The DOL proposal excludes construction but we need to make sure that the construction exclusion is a permanent part of the final rule.  For more information on the impact of IRAP's on the NEIEP apprenticeship and IUEC, please see the attached letter from the IUEC General Officers and go to the International website at www.iuec.org/index.php/save-neiep-apprenticeship/ then click Elevator Constructors and go to Mechanic, Apprentice or Retired (whichever applies to you) and fill in the required spaces and hit send.

If you would like to come by the Business Office, we can help you get it filled out.

For our campaign to be successful, we will need the support of the entire IUEC family.  It will not be enough to just ask our members and retirees to submit comments, we need each member to ask their family, friends, and other interested parties to submit a comment also.

Fraternally,

The Business Office
