There were no dry eyes -- or other body parts -- for several dozen volunteers at International headquarters, August 29, as they endured a drenching of ice water in the fight against ALS. A number of Bank of Labor employees also took part in the “freeze line.”
The International group dunking raised $1,200, which will be matched by the Brotherhood. Participants from Bank of Labor contributed at least $500 (totals were still being determined at press time), with a dollar-for-dollar match to be added by the bank.
We're Looking for a Boilermaker - It could be you!
Watching hunting and fishing TV shows is great…but imagine being part of one!
The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance is looking for a hardworking, outdoors-loving, Boilermaker to be a guest on its union-dedicated TV show, Brotherhood Outdoors. A trip is already lined up for mid-November: an Alabama muzzleloader hunt for trophy whitetail with Hawkins Ridge Lodge on one of the largest unbroken tracts of land in the southeast - known for its big bucks! All that’s missing is a Boilermaker guest for the adventure.
LIKE THE OIL sands region where most of its members work, Local 146 in Edmonton, Alberta, has seen substantial growth in recent years — and with that growth has come the need for expanded administration and training facilities.
On June 14, the local cut the ribbon to formally open its new Boilermaker Apprenticeship and Mechanical Training Centre, located adjacent to its union hall. The event coincided with the lodge’s annual barbecue, which was held on the grounds of the centre.
INDUSTRIAL SECTOR OPERATIONS held its 2014 conference at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas July 29-August 1, drawing more than 200 participants. The conference is the largest learning event held for industrial lodges, with delegates attending from across North America.
The three day-meeting included half-day plenary sessions with speaker presentations followed by break-out segments for industry- and topic-specific educational content.
