ConocoPhillips says Local 92 members “walk the talk”

AS THE FCC Particulate Project [Wilmington, Calif.] wraps up, I would like to comment on the outstanding participation by our team members of Boilermakers Local 92 [Los Angeles]. Without their commitment, our project would not have been a success.

Boilermakers Local 92 [demonstrated] the belief that safety is number one. They walk the talk. They truly believe in our project motto, “Safety Takes Every Person.”

New lodge officers attend training

St. John’s, Newfoundland, Sept. 9-11

Program held in five cities in United States and Canada

2008 WAS AN election year — not only for the governments of Canada and the United States, but also for Boilermaker local lodges in both countries. While U.S. lodges must hold elections every three years, Canadian lodges do so every five years. Occasionally, the Boilermaker local lodge election cycles coincide, as they did in 2008.

Babcock & Wilcox praises L-627

CONGRATULATIONS ON ACCOMPLISHING what appeared to be the impossible on an unbelievable schedule, while still maintaining safety and quality. Our first impression: there was no way to get a big enough lift crane close enough to replace the “B” spray dryer absorbers in the assembly sizes necessary to support the customer’s [Tucson Electric Power Company at the Springerville Generating Station] production schedule. But your guys [Phoenix Local 627 members] did it!
