On October 12th the International Union of Elevator Constructors dedicated a memorial at their headquarters in Columbia, Maryland to those Brothers and Sisters who lost their lives on the job. IUEC Local 17 sent Brothers Bill Lynsky, John Patton, Business Manager John Driscoll, Jr. and Mike Moennich to the ceremony. Local 17 has six Brothers memorialized: John Babuscak, Kenneth Beechuk, Joseph Bonacci, Dennis McGunagle, Jim Sinclair and Clarence Sweeney.
Below is a little taste of being a part of the IUEC family. The different events: St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Retiree’s Dinner, softball tournament and the golf outing all serve to cement the bonds of brotherhood and family.
Please take a few minutes and explore the familiar and not so familiar faces from this years events to date.
The IUEC Local 17 softballers were two and done again this year. Timely hitting could not overcome inconsistent fielding and in the end the men fell to Ironworkers 17 and Boilermakers 744.
Here are highlights from the 2017 Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day Parade and IUEC Local 17.
