On Tuesday April 19th, we had an election for 3 Delegates to the International Convention in Las Vegas, NV. The results were as follows:

Dave Whitmore – 26

Paul Kauffman – 23

Mark Richeson – 21

Ben Scroggins – 17 (Alternate)

We also voted to allocate our contract increase at the union meeting. This is the last year of a 3 year contract. The contract had 30 cents allocated to the Health and Welfare and 50 cents allocated to 498DB Pension predetermined. The additional 1.50 was voted on and allocated. A 1.40 went to the Tri-State Health and Welfare

to insure continued good coverage, a better retirement benefit, and the benefit of a stable larger plan that was needed. The Apprentice Fund received the remaining 10 cents to help maintain the growing apprentice program.
