Steward training for Eastern Division Stewards will be Wednesday October 17th at the Albany Union Hall.
It will start at 10:00 and continue past 15:30. Space will be limited to 25 Stewards. If interested, please contact your Business Rep. to reserve a spot.
With the end of August coming its time to start thinking about the upcoming fall and winter seasons. Please take a look at your fire resistant clothing allowance accounts and order early. Take a look at your winter gear to be sure it's all in good working order or replace it if needed. And don't forget to prepare at home! Furnace maintenance, chimney cleaning, fire alarm battery checks etc.
The Local 97 IGNITE youth group is looking for people interested in reinvigorating the labor movement, helping the communities around us and being future leaders of Local 97. Sign up at any meeting, call the hall for information or just come to the Syracuse hall on Friday September 21 where you're invited to join the IGNITE membership at an informal get together. There will be food, drinks, games and raffles! Get your tickets at the hall, couples welcome.
If you haven't gotten your tickets for the union appreciation party in Saratoga on the 15th they're still available at the hall. See you all then!
I also want to wish the Eastern Division Gas Rodeo Team a safe and successful trip to Kansas City, Missouri, where they are competing in the National Gas Rodeo in September. -Chuck Milos, IBEW Local 97 Assistant Business Manager East
