LOCAL 85 (TOLEDO, Ohio) recorded the highest percentage of members participating in seven specific MOST programs in 2011, a feat which won the lodge the second annual Charles W. Jones Award.

L-85 BM-ST Fred Keith accepted the award on behalf of the lodge during the 27th Annual National Tripartite Alliance conference in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Oct. 16.

Keith told the conference, “We as Boilermakers touch so many lives on a daily basis. It’s great to be a part of this organization.”

Designed to encourage the use 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.
