Brothers and Sisters,

Local Union 99 has formed a Scholarship Committee. There are five members. The Officers include Recording Chairman Stephen Brady, Business Manager Michael Daley, President James Jackson, Daniel Angell and Christopher Capozzi.
The Committees’ task is easy, help members interested in attending a post-secondary school with some tuition relief. Of course in the beginning there’s not a lot of money. In fact currently only 1/3 of those working are participating members. Part of the reason for this is that they may have started working before the foundation was formed.

So we are asking all members to consider joining the Scholarship Program by making a charitable contribution for each hour worked.

Our goal is to have all members participating by next year and to open this program to them and their dependent children, but we need your help.

NOW!  If you’re currently a participating member and you are attending classes at the post- secondary level, stop by the office and pick up a scholarship application form.

We won’t be able to pay for the entire course but speaking from experience, every little bit helps.

So let’s make sure when you get your referral, you sign the Scholarship portion of your form. Contribution forms and eligibility forms are available at the business office.

Members participating in ILSR / CCRI classes should fill out application forms for reimbursement.

If you are Unemployed, you could possibly be eligible to take college classes for free. Check with the Bursars office of the college for more information.

IMPORTANT: New referral guidelines posted in the Members Forum

It is a fact, Union Workers are 17% more productive than non-union workers

The simple facts are Union workers spend a great deal more time being trained for their profession than non-union. Training is the key to productivity and safety.  It only makes sense, with so much more time in training and contractors that are highly skilled in managing a project, clearly  the end result has to be a dramatic increase in productivity
