President's Message

November 26, 2019
General President Daniel Stepano

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have much to be thankful for. The brotherhood and sisterhood of our fellow members. The solidarity we possess. The training and safety protections our Apprenticeship and other programs provide. The wages and benefits we earn. The power we gain through collective bargaining. The fulfilling careers we build with the support of our union. And the fulfilling crafts we engage in each and every work day.
