January ’23 Elevator Constructor

Brothers and Sisters:

There’s a lot going on so, lets get to it…

Photos from the 2022 Children’s Christmas Party held December 10th at the hall are now available on the Local 17 website, iueclocal17.org.  This is the first party since the pandemic and, as always, was a great time for parents and children.  

There will be 40 apprentices in the spring semester NEIEP classes.  Jerry Reitz will be teaching RC300 on Monday and Tuesday, Tim Narowitz will teach RC500 on Tuesday and Wednesday and Don Knapik will teach RC800 on Thursday.

All enrolled apprentices should have received their class assignments.  Also, all new apprentices to the program will be receiving a laptop to use in class.  If you have any questions about your class assignment, day or have not received your laptop, contact Business Manager John Driscoll Jr at 216-431-8088 or email him at JEDriscoll@iueclocal17.org.

Local 17 is planning a welding class between the fall and spring semesters at the world headquarters of Lincoln Electric in Euclid.  Any mechanic or apprentice interested must first complete an online prep course on the NEIEP website, neiep.org.  If you have any questions, contact John at the hall.

The January 13, 2023 meeting is a mandatory meeting for the installation of officers.  Those without a valid reason for not attending will be fined.
