Check out the new mezzanine built by one of our apprentice classes. James Dixon, Jared Hobbs, Heath Jansen, Tanner Johnston, and Greg Spain. The instructor for the class was Dean Markee, thanks for designing it and over seeing this apprentice project. Turned out awesome! Thanks also to Painters Local 607 for painting it all up. Next project for next group, removable hand rail and ship ladder.

Everyone should be receiving a form from Tri-State Welfare Fund. This form is requesting information on whether you have other insurance through your family.
This form was sent out to eliminate the denials when your dependents have their first claims of the year.
If you recall your dependents were denied until you stated whether there was other coverage for them.
Hopefully this will help move your dependents claims through more efficiently. Let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Holidays from Ironworkers Local 498. We hope the Holidays bring you joy and the New Year brings you prosperity!
Be Safe out there.
