From the President 

As we began work in 2021, a wet and cold 1st quarter stalled our hours. As we continue to work past the COVID restriction period and the weather warms, we anticipate being busy with work in most of the Local 8 jurisdiction.

We continue our organizing and recuriting efforts. And we are excited that Dennis Hummert joined us on March 15, 2021 as a new Field Rep in the Belleville/Murphysboro area. We have seen results from Dennis in the short time he has been with the team. He has recruited two (2) non union journeymen and is working to bring in new apprentices to the Local 8 team.  On May 1, 2021, Jason Atwood joined the team as the Field Rep for the Springfield/Jacksonville area. Welcome Jason to the Local 8 Team.

As a member of Local 8, join the team and help organize non-union members. Check out our promotion program and contact your local field rep for more information.  Refer a new apprentice by contacting Shane Garrisson at 618-401-9960.

All Chapter Meetings have resumed. The chapter membership awards will be given out at the "Christmas in July" Meetings. We look forward to seeing each of you.
