Pride and Safety: Two unfortunate incidents involving trade workers have recently sparked much attention locally and nationally. You can read a message here from the Insulators General President James Grogan regarding an incident at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant and another at a uranium processing plant in Illinois. His message is a good reminder about the importance of professionalism, quality work, and above all else, safety on the jobsite. The actions of a few can have serious consequences for many. Strive to make your Union proud at every job, every day; work like your job depends on it, because it does.
