OSHA 10 and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) classes are now available. OSHA 10 is a requirement on many projects and CPR is something that every member should be certified in. Also, we will be conducting Professional Craftsman Code of Conduct (PCCC) training. Every member is required to participate in this program. Notices of those not yet trained through the PCCC will be mailed out shortly, if you haven't received it already.
Help Fight Us Fight Against Shady Fast Track Deals
The labor movement continues to push back hard on Fast Track and shady trade deals with a national week of action. Unions are leading this fight, and we are poised to win. Why wouldn't we want to make sure future trade deals will have a positive impact on the U.S. trade balance, create good, family-wage jobs, and protect the environment and our natural resources? Fast Track legislation shrouds trade deals in secrecy. It makes it nearly impossible for Congress to fix trade deals that harm our economy and environment. It prevents citizens from providing input to proposals while the deal is being negotiated. It makes you wonder what they're trying to hide.
Tell your representative Fast Track is undemocratic and that we have the right to know what's in a trade deal before it is finalized. For more info, visit http://www.nofasttrack.com/
