Brothers and Sisters,
2018 was a great year for our union. We successfully celebrated the centennial of the NYC District Council, secured work and ensured good-paying jobs for our membership, and we were able to volunteer our skills to those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, just to name a few highlights. I am proud of everything we accomplished this year and am confident we have laid the groundwork for the next.
As we enjoy this holiday season with our families and look forward to what next year will bring, I want to emphasize the importance of togetherness and unity in our union values. There will always be those who seek to bring us down or stand in our way, but know that we are strong when we stand together. While this new year will bring prosperity, it will also bring challenges. However, we have the skills and resolve to meet each new obstacle head on.
We are the best in the business and the most qualified tradespeople in the industry. With every job, structure, and building we constructed this year, we left our mark and next year will be no different. We’ve made it our top priority to increase our market share by ensuring members have access to the best training and by working with local communities to increase our presence and recruit top talent.
Thank you for all your incredible hard work and support this year. More great things and success are on the horizon.
I wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe holiday.
