GUBMK thanks L-454 for Kingston work

[Addressed to Scott May, Local 454 (Chattanooga, Tenn.) BM-ST Scott May]

I JUST WANTED to take a minute of your time to express our gratitude to you and your members for their contributions to what [I] and others consider a very successful 2016 spring outage season here at Kingston Fossil Plant. We have worked on 7 of the 9 units here at KIF this outage season with what is currently (as of this date, 4-26-2016) 1,645 days without a recordable injury, and in addition to this we have managed to meet the expectations of some very aggressive outage scheduling. I personally recognize this . . . as one of the more successful outage seasons here at KIF in quite some time. We have accomplished many goals in a timely manner and gotten to go home at the end of each shift able to take care of our families. We are especially grateful to those that stuck it out with us to the bitter end, day after day, and want them to know that their dedication is greatly appreciated. We are looking forward to future outages with confidence, knowing that this is the safety culture and work ethic that we can expect from the members of Local 454.

Thank you.

Fraternally,

CLAY TIPTON
GUBMK
