Things are starting to pick up in dispatch. I know we are all hoping the skies have finally dried up so we can get back to work in full force. It sounds like it is going to be a very productive summer.
I hope you all got a chance to get over to the training center and renew certifications or brush up on your skills. If you did, make sure to call dispatch and update your records. The training center does not let us know if you have been over there. Also let me know if you have cards that have expired.
I have been in negotiations with Tacoma School District and things are moving along well. In June we will start negotiations with WestRock.
Local 612 has teamed up with the Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention. Their goal is to provide information and resources for suicide prevention and mental health promotion in construction. They will send quarterly communications, which I will post on our website.
We have a lot of work ahead of us. Be safe out there and take care of each other.
