Congressman plays guitar for members on Labor Day

WHEN LOCAL 154 (Pittsburgh) members say U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy rocks, they really mean it. Not only does the Republican representative (18th District) support many of the lodge’s issues — he even lends his musical talent to entertain its members.

That was the case Sep. 1, when Murphy strapped himself to a guitar at the lodge’s Labor Day celebration and strummed away with the band, “Pita.”

Kudos

Alstom credits L-128 for proving value of union contractors

WE WOULD LIKE to thank and commend the Boilermaker crew that Local 128 (Toronto, Ontario) dispatched to the Timmins Kiddmet site last spring.

Day after day, without exception, this group of Boilermakers produced an excellent quality of work. Their cooperative attitude, friendly manner, and willingness to work left behind a very good impression.

The dedication and professionalism shown by this group under some very difficult situations earned the respect of all who observed.
