****Notice from Executive Director Kristen Spath****

 

There has been an update to the Safety Incentive Application 2022 process. In past years, Southwest Multi-Craft had sent out the applications to all members. They have recently sent out a letter to all members stating they will no longer be mailing out applications. So, there are three outlets to get your application for 2022. Go online to https://www.ssatpa.com/, search Safety Incentive Applications, print the document. Or, you can obtain a copy here at the Training yard, or at your local Union Hall. Training must be completed by August 31st. Applications will be available starting September 1st, and applications are due by October 15th. All of the remaining trainings for the year have filled up. 

OSHA cards are taking much longer to receive due to mailing issues. We are hoping to get the most recent training cards in soon. 

Our next CDL Training/Testing will begin October 1st, 2022. If you are interested in the training and getting tested to receive your CDL, please call Veronica to register. 

We will not be giving 1st Aid Training this year, it is not required for members to have for Safety Incentive. It was just an extra class to get more points.

If you are planning on coming to the training site and you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID, have been in contact with someone who has tested positive,  please do not come to the training site.

I want to personally thank Crane Service Inc. for partnering with us to assist with training our Crane Apprentices. Working with them has been nothing short of pleasant. I look forward to getting this program going. Also a big thank you to Franklins Earthmoving in starting the process to accept apprentices for the first time. 

Please visit our new Member Assistance Program page for information on ways the Operating Engineers Local 953 and your health insurance can help you with addiction, depression, anxiety, etc. We are here for our members and we are here for those who are struggling in their personal lives. 

Our office hopes all of our brothers and sisters are doing well. If you need any training, please let us know. If we can't do the training here, we can send you to the ITEC for free. 

Thank you,
