Dear Members,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Here’s to hoping 2016 brings about more positive change and progress!

ICI negotiations have begun, so please continue to check the News page of the Members’ Section as updates will be posted frequently. I’m working diligently to ensure that the best interest of the membership is always main priority.

Additionally, we have just confirmed that the 15, 25 & 40 Year Pin Ceremony will be a brunch and will take place on April 16th at the Lamplighter Inn. Mark the date in your calendars, details will be finalized shortly.

As well we are looking to form a welding committee. If you would like to be a part of it call the office.

I trust you all are enjoying the new website. Remember to register to the Members’ Section to access member-only information and updates.

Finally, I am urging everyone to visit our social media pages. Here you will find additional information pertaining to our local, and other relevant industry news. It’s a great platform for our members to share ideas and interact, on a digital level. Our social media links can be accessed directly from this site.

Thank you again for being active members of SMWIA Local 473!

I look forward to seeing you both online and at our next monthly membership meeting!

In Solidarity,
