In Virginia, one vote determined the balance of power in that state and what path leaders will take in the foreseeable future.

Research shows sharp drill bits mean less dust, noise, vibration & faster drilling

You probably already know that a sharp new drill bit makes the work easier – but did you know it can also make the work safer and faster?

Just in time for Labor Day, the Economic Policy Institute again reminded its readers “today’s unions help working people” by “giving them the power to improve their jobs and unrig the economy” from corporate dominance.

Whether policymakers in Washington and many state capitals are listening is dubious.

The nation’s unions plan “to focus on our members” in the run-up to the 2018 election, bringing them a pro-worker economic platform, highlighting candidates who pledge to push it and showing 2016’s Trump voters how the Republican president broke his promises to them, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says.

But in an August 30 session with reporters, anticipating Labor Day, Trumka admitted that means unions have a lot of work to do – politically and otherwise.

More than 100 union sheet metal industry professionals from across North America gathered for the 16th annual International Certification Board (ICB) conference May 1-5 in Saint Charles, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis.

With highly visible arenas, stadiums and high- rise commercial buildings under construction or renovation across the country, architectural sheet metal is gracefully stepping into the spotlight. For every high-profile project, there is an equally important local project that demands workers with specific skills and just-as-high expectations.

Lindsay Lanning of Glendale, Arizona, was selected as the grand prize winner of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) and Carhartt Ultimate Elk Hunt Sweepstakes, winning a guided five-day elk hunt in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico, valued at approximately $22,000.

Lanning is a member of SMART TD Local 1629 and was selected from nearly 5,000 entrants. She is also a member of the USA, which partnered with Carhartt to honor the American worker by awarding a hunt of a lifetime to one union member and a guest.

The 16th Annual ICB conference will begin on Monday May 1, 2017 at 8 a.m. and conclude on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 5 p.m. in St. Charles, Missouri.

This year’s joint labor and management event will offer numerous classes, workshops and seminars on a variety of current topics geared toward working professionals, with a focus on codes, standards and certification requirements that control our industry. For the first time, all classes, workshops and seminars will be open to all attendees from both labor and management.
