The E-board decided to forgo the hands-on Journeyman testing and require only the written test to complete their apprenticeship on the Union end. The hands on-journeyman test that we use was put in place during the time that the Insulators were going to have a state license. It’s not a part of our registered apprenticeship program with the state, so it does not affect your completion on my end. Some of you are getting behind on your on-line time card, which can cause problems that would affect your apprenticeship contract if you don’t stay on top of that. Please let me know if you are having any issues with the International Web-site.
We have a group of new apprentices that just completed OSHA 30 the week of Thanksgiving that was given by our OSHA instructor Business Agent Mr. Robert Potter. These members have started during and have been working though our new normal, with health safety issues that we are all adjusting to.
Mr. Allen Marshall, Mr. Dakota Smock, Mr. Alex Hoffman, Mr. Loyd Guzior, Mr. Andrew Roch, Mr. Logan Peot, Mr. Adam Sawyer, Ms. Toni Nofal, Mr. Anthony Adrian, Mr. James Peterson and Mr. Josh Spardone. Please welcome and look over our new brothers and sister on the job sites.
I hope you and your family have a great Christmas and a better New Year!
