Babcock Power thanks L-199 for baffle plate work

THE PURPOSE OF this letter is to express our appreciation for the outstanding performance of the Local 199 Boilermakers supplied by you [BM-ST Carl Ferguson] and assigned by W.W. Gay Inc. to perform the baffle plate work on the Deerhaven Plant unit 2 for Gainesville Regional Utilities. [Babcock Power affiliate Riley Power Inc. subcontracted the work to Gay.]

Most noteworthy was W.W. Gay’s Cecil Stalnaker and his Boilermakers continuously coming up with alternate methods to do the work more safely and productively. This group of Boilermakers was a credit to your local and the Boilermaker trade in general. Their performance . . . is the best example of the advantage of using union Boilermakers.

At the risk of omitting someone, I’d like to list all of the Boilermakers who did such outstanding work: Michael Thompson (foreman), David “Cotton” Thrift Sr. (foreman), Derek Williams, Al Carr, Kenneth Rowland, Stephan Huckleberry, William Howard Jr., Charles Stilley, Chad Hughes, Lamar Crews, and Leslie Williams.
