Business Manager's Update (Sept 11, 2020)
Posted On: Sep 11, 2020

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

This has been a hard year. After bravely stepping up to meet the challenges of adapting to the dangers of COVID-19 and carefully navigating the financial disruptions, we are hit with unprecedented wildfires that are forcing many from their homes. When we needed rest and certainty, we were dealt another seemingly insurmountable obstacle. Yet through all this, we will not give into the belief that the future is as gloomy and hazy as the skies now covering much of the west coast.

It is in times like these that I am proud to be an Operating Engineer. I have seen the strength and power of our membership when the going gets tough. As union members we stick together and watch out for each other. When a heavy load weighs down on one of us, we come together to shoulder it in solidarity with one another. When several staff members and their families had to be evacuated from their homes, they checked in at the hall and showed up to work the next day so that they could continue to help their brothers and sisters in any way that they can. Throughout everything, stick with your union. Know that you are a part of something bigger, and that together we are unstoppable.

In that spirit, I encourage everyone to stick together and keep in touch with the Local. Call dispatch and make sure that we have good contact information so that we can stay connected with you. If you or someone you know is in crisis or is having difficulty with what this year has thrown at us, please reach out and tell us. We are all in this together, and together we will make it through to the other side.

Always in solidarity,

James Anderson

Business Manager/Financial Secretary
