I want to thank all the Brothers and Sisters who worked "My Fair Lady", once again we won.

Those of you that received the Lucas letter need to attend the next local meeting (see the top of this page), there are several sections to that letter that are completely false and others that are outright lies, I want to dispel those inaccuracies at the meeting. Personally, I think it is a weak scare tactic, they don't even know enough about our organization to give an accurate account of our wants and desires. I want to see 100% of the votes cast on voting day cast UNION YES!
In solidarity -Wayne

As the Business Agent, for Local 320, I want to thank all our old and new Brothers and Sisters for an outstanding year. We have demonstrated that we are a force to be reckoned with. Every job we go on we leave our employers with the satisfaction of a job well done. We are gaining the recognition of local employers, and are truly a working local. Two years ago these statements could not have been made, today I am proud to say it in this forum. I am proud to be your B.A. and look forward to 2002

We want to thank Bro. Thomas Dray, #629 Augusta, for giving us the call on CATS. We all appreciate the sacrifices he made to fulfill the promise made to our Local. When we have overflow work in the coming months #629 will be our first call

Big thanks to the Brothers and Sisters that were involved with any work we had between December 6th and 16th. The handful that went to Augusta represented for 20% of the load-in / out, and almost 50% of the show call for CATS. Thanks for making us proud. Those who worked at the Lucas for the Harlem Boys Choir and the load-in / out of the Gifts of the Magi, I want to thank for being there and making it happen. The run crew for Gifts also deserves recognition for setting aside so much time to make the run as consistent as possible. We rock!

Thanks to the Brothers and Sisters who attended the Local meeting. I feel like we've gotten a lot accomplished in the past year. Your participation in this Local has helped make that possible. Your comments are welcome at any time, Local business issues should be brought before the body of the Local at the meetings. Thanks again for attending and helping to make it OUR voice that is heard

Brothers and Sisters don't forget the canned food for the Local's Food drive. Let's help those that cannot help themselves

Thanks to the Brothers that came out to put the tree on top of the Lucas marquee on such short notice. It's miments like these which make us great

Local 320 would like to express our thanks to GLP A/V Inc. for the work on Nov. 8 & 10.

The week of October 29 to November 4 in review...

November 2+4, AVSS, our first repeat customer since we were released from trustee-ship employed two brothers, Chuck LeValle and Kevin Banker. AVSS was once again thankful for our services
