What a great turn out at the Labor Day Parade! I was awesome to see all the Ironworkers and their families come out. A special thanks to Travis Nelson (Area Erectors), Ben Lipnitsky (Civil), and Josh Kettle (JP Cullen) for bringing out their company trucks. I hope everyone enjoyed the day!
Just a reminder:
Labor Day is in a week. Line up is at 7th St. and 6th Ave. at 9 am. I hope to see everyone and there families there. This is our day to celebrate Labor and everything it has done for working people. I will have lunch tickets, the parade ends at Davis Park with a picnic and activities. It is good family fun.
T-shirts are available at the Hall or at the Parade start.
Reminder: Union Meeting tonight. 6 pm. Hope to see you there.
Also, Labor Day shirts are in. Come pick yours up for the Labor Day Parade Sept. 5th.
Another Rockford Project. Rock Valley College is adding a Nursing School in Partnership with OSF on the RVC Campus. JP Cullen is the GC and Steel Erector on the job. Here are a couple of shots of the raising gang in action. Ray Beardin and Mark Whitford are the connectors and Al Gall and Al Contreras (the Two AL’s) are the hook on men.
Topping out Ceremony at Rockford’s OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center. Very proud of our Iron workers who did a fantastic job erecting the new addition. Thank you also, to OSF for utilizing local union labor, Area Erectors, Gateway Construction for Reinforcing , and Ringland Johnson as General Contractor to get the job done both safely and efficiently.
Job well done!
