Honor recognizes MOST participation

LOCAL LODGE 433 (Tampa, Fla.) recorded the highest percentage of members participating in seven select MOST programs in 2012, an achievement that won the lodge the third annual Charles W. Jones Award.

L-433 BM-ST James Barnes accepted the award on behalf of the lodge during the 28th Annual National Tripartite Alliance conference in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Oct. 8, 2013. Designed to encourage the use of MOST programs, the award is named after the late Boilermakers’ International President Emeritus, who passed away in 2010 after more than 60 years of service. The silicon and bronze statue depicts a 1930s-era Boilermaker holding a rivet gun.

MOST stands for Mobilization, Optimization, Stabilization, and Training. It is the premier safety and training fund in the building and construction trades industry and includes 17 distinct programs to ensure manpower availability, safe work practices, and skills training. The Boilermakers union and the National Association of Construction Boilermaker Employers (NACBE) are the founding organizations and share equally in its operation and management.
