Who Is Building Your Future?
“The best way to predict your future is to create it”
– Abraham Lincoln
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
2018 has the potential to be a busy, productive and prosperous year. We are coming off of a great 2017, where we increased working hours over 2016 by more than 300,000 hours. That’s an 8% increase in getting more members to work. This year, new markets are presenting opportunities for us to capture additional market share. Our Council’s strategic goals focus on scaffolding, interior systems, and healthcare construction, and we are pulling out all the stops to sign contractors, secure PLAs or contracts, and train our members in the skills they need to excel in these hot industries.
I pledge to you that your Council staff will do everything in our power to secure steady work for all of you, and to bolster our membership with new carpenters and pile drivers so that we can staff any job our employers win.
But make no mistake – the person who is truly building your future is yourself.
We can set-up multiple work opportunities, but it’s you and your brothers and sisters who must be ready to act when the opportunity surfaces. How can you do that? Be involved.
