Hello from District 3.
As anyone working at LAX knows, you are required to have an OSHA 10 cert within the last four years. Seeing that the ETI offers an OSHA 30, which, of course, is a more extensive course, there are resources to acquire an OSHA 10. Clicksafety is a resource that comes to mind. Please don’t let not having this certification keep you from one of the many jobs we have going on out at the airport.
I want to congratulate RENEW for putting on a great event at the South Bay Hall. The Luau was well-attended, and there were plenty of activities and entertainment for members and family of all ages.
In closing, it is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of one of our great mainstays in District 3. Marvin Keller passed last week at the age of 96. If you only attended one District 3 meeting, you would have had the opportunity to meet him. He was always there. He was very involved in many District 3 activities, and he chaired our unit meetings for Mark Aihara. His memorial was well-attended by several IBEW Local 11 members, including three past and one current business agent: Mark Aihara, James “Hoppy” Hopkins, Rusty Roten and yours truly.
It is an honor and a pleasure to serve the membership.
Business Agent, District 3
