L-69 embraces Code & Creed

[Addressed to International President Newton B. Jones]

ON APRIL 24TH, while in town for a Local 69 [Little Rock, Ark.] retiree picnic, I attended a union meeting at the lodge. The meeting was well attended, and I noticed banners depicting the Boilermaker Creed hanging from the walls of the union hall. I was pleasantly surprised to see members stand up and recite the Boilermaker Creed when the meeting began. Business Manager Rodney Allison then explained how the characteristics identified in the Boilermaker Code describe what it means to be a Boilermaker.

Boilermaker Code is “survival tool”

[Addressed to IP Newton B. Jones, via email]

I JUST WATCHED “The Boilermaker Code: Ending the Red Ass Era.” The Boilermaker Code may be the most important survival tool since the inception of the MOST programs. I am so glad to see that we are admitting to and addressing an issue that has cost us untold man-hours and dollars.

Thank you.
