Local 374’s Shick earns top honors at National Apprenticeship Competition

L-5, Z-7’s Jacob Weber and partner Zane Martin, L-29, both from the Northeast, work on the buddy weld exercise. The test requires contestants to cut out a section of a bad tube and replace it with a new one.

BILLY SHICK FROM Local 374 (Hobart, Indiana) took home the top honor at the 2019 National Apprenticeship Competition held at Local 28 (Newark, New Jersey) August 12-16, upsetting Detroit Local 169’s four-year winning streak. The close finish had L-169’s Justin Zueski coming in as this year’s runner-up. Team honors went to the Great Lakes team of Shick and Zueski.

Boilermaker National Apprenticeship Program chairman Michael Bray, from Riggs Distler Company, spoke at the awards dinner and praised all the competitors.

Money brought her to the union; the Brotherhood keeps her here

L-83 dispatcher Tatum Keister

IT’S NO SURPRISE that Local 83 dispatcher Tatum Keister turned to the trades for her livelihood when she indentured in 2003. There were only five women in the Kansas City-based local at the time, but that didn’t faze her. She’d grown up with a family who thrived on manual labor.

Keister’s Arkansas upbringing had her roaming the woods and helping her lumberjack uncles with their work. They would cut trees on their land, then sell the logs to local sawmills. The family also hauled around firewood to local residents and businesses on the weekends.

Scouts earn merit badge at L-83

SCOUTS FROM TROOP 1028 in Platte City, Missouri, spent a few evenings this past winter at Local 83 (Kansas City, Missouri) learning about weld and cutting processes and tool identification, as well as watching demonstrations of welding and torch and plasma cutting. To cap off their week, the scouts worked with Boilermakers to make a popcorn popper for the troop’s next camping trip, and they earned a merit badge.
