 To:  All IBEW Local Union # 972 Stewards and Members


Subject:  Collection for Sister Jessica Cremeans


 Brothers and Sisters,


I need to bring to your attention that Sister Jessica M Cremeans has had a surgical procedure and has been off work for several weeks.


It has been the policy of this local union to help its members in need.  Therefore, I ask that a collection be taken by each project Steward and at the Union Hall to assist her during these hard times.


For those of you who do not recognize Jessica, she has been a member of our Local since September of 2020 and is currently an apprentice. Thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion for our sister Jessica.


United We Stand,


Michael E Haught

Business Manager

Applicants for referral who have been referred and rejected by the employer will not be considered as a turndown and will regain their current position on the Out-of-Work Book.

There will no longer be a short call list.  A call is a call.  Any call that works 40 hours or less, through no fault of his or her own, will be restored to their appropriate place withing their Group.  Proof of hours worked will be required to be restored.
