Brothers and sisters,
I want to thank you for re-electing me as President of this great local. I have been privileged to serve in this capacity and am even more privileged (and humbled) to be able to serve you all for the next three years. Thank you.
Here we are FINALLY coming out of the COVID -19 restrictions, and we can have our union meetings in person and other events as well. The general meeting for June 2021, having been scheduled for the Pasadena Convention Center, was picked to accommodate our membership and get everyone back into that meeting attendance mindset. The new district offices are nearly complete. One is up and running which includes dispatch and the other is training a new administrative assistant to be able to do the same as soon as possible.
The 4th of July is just around the corner, and I want to remind you all that you should be very careful not to get yourselves blown up by engaging in illegal fireworks. You are very important to your families and your hands, arms, and face (eyesight) are very important to your livelihood. Be careful and be safe!
As always, if you have any questions about the local or your benefits, call your district agent, the trust offices or my office and we will be happy to address your concerns and hopefully enlighten you as to how things work.
Thank you again for the privilege to serve.
Gaylord “Rusty” Roten
President/Senior Assistant Business Manager
