Brothers and Sisters,
As fall approaches, so does election season. As I’ve been stating at our monthly union meetings, every member must show up and vote on Election Day. We need to elect pro-worker candidates in Massachusetts and Vermont who support organized labor and fight for things that are important to all of us. It matters whom we elect to local and national political offices because elections have consequences!
With the amount of upcoming work Local 63 contractors have, we will be faced with reaching out to surrounding SMART Locals to meet our manpower needs. With the amount of work in our region, this may not be enough, and we will be actively organizing new members from open shops to fulfill our labor needs. We are asking members who know people currently working in the HVAC, sheet metal, welding, or architectural sheet metal industries to please have them contact me for employment opportunities.
As always, we are stronger together, and through unity, we will continue to grow.
Michael J. LaFleur
Local 63 Regional Manager
