Happy New Year Local 97. 2016 was a busy year and if the first few weeks of 2017 are any indication, we are in for another busy one.
This year, our focus will be on safety. As you will read below, members across the state have begun safety training to refresh their memories on best practices and to remind us that safety should be our number one priority. Whether you have been on the job for years or are just starting out, our goal at the end of every shift is to make sure that you get home to your loved ones safely. Remember to stay focused while on the job and report any unsafe working conditions or bosses who are trying to force you to do things that you think are unsafe. Remember no job is so important that you risk your life.
