IUEC Local 17 will be participating in the Cleveland Building Trades Annual Softball Tournament held Labor Day weekend at Parma’s James Day Park. The tournament pits the best softball teams of the trades against one another for the biggest bragging rights in the trades. If you are interested in participating contact Business manager John Driscoll Jr at JEDriscoll@iueclocal17.org or call him at the hall at 216-431-8088.
Apprentices will have the months of June and July off until starting classes again the second week in August. Those in RC100 will advance to RC200 and Those from RC400 will take RC700. There will be a mandatory orientation night which will be announced once the date has been set.
Apprentices note that pay increases are dependent on having successfully passed two semesters and are effective September 1.
The Elevator Licensing Bill currently is headed for the Ohio Senate for a possible vote. As of now, the best chance of passage comes if a Sunset Clause is added to the bill which would allow the law to lapse once a certain time has been reached. The advantage is that if the law proves to be an encumbrance to the licensees, it will lapse and the requirement would disappear.
The IUEC Local 17 Golf outing is rescheduled for September 24th at Mallard Creek Golf Course, 34500 Royalton Rd, Columbia Station. The cost is $100 per golfer and includes golf, cart, food and refreshments. Reservations can be secured by contacting Entertainment Chairman Brian Chambers through the hall and paying through PayPal.
As of this writing there is one mechanic on the bench.
