MEMBERS THE NEXT LOCAL MEETING IS TUESDAY, APRIL 2 AT 7 P.M. LOCATED AT 1513 PAULSEN ST.

Thanks to Local 115 for having a handful of our brothers come down and help with the Jacksonville Auto Show. We appreciate the work and the call. On the same note thanks to the brothers that took the time to work the auto show, you are what makes us a great local

Brothers & Sisters work safety is the new hot topic. Steel-toed / tipped shoes are the new standard of footwear our members must adopt as part of their "uniform". I cannot stress enough how important it is to have your feet protected. Not to mention, it is a work standard in our business. You can pick-up steel-toes at Kmart for as little as $35.00. At Uniforms by Patrick or Red-Wing (where you get 10% off if you show your Union card) you can find boots for anywhere from $50-$200. There are several other industrial stores around town, where you go and how much you pay, depends on how much you love your feet and what your pocket can bear. We do not endorse our members shopping at Sears and Wal-mart (they are not union friendly). Please get out and find some foot protection, do it for safeties sake

Thanks to all the brothers and sister who came together to make the last couple weeks happen. Titanic, Copperfield and the BB & T thing were all very successful thanks to this Local. If I haven't said it before, I'll say it now, y'all rock.

Thanks to the following members of 320 for their efforts on January 25th and all that led up to it...Michael Satterfield, Thompson Conrade, Alex Glen, Jordan Fiore, Erik Perry, Charles LeValle, Larry Ware, Chris Allen, Lex Camp, Matthew Andrews, Matthew Krueger, Jason Paraskevas, Alex Grikitis, Adam Varnedoe, Larry Ware, Matthew Haddock, Dawn Grimmer, and any other Brother or Sister that has been left out. Thank you for standing tall, letting your voice be heard, and showing your Union Pride!

The silent demonstration was a huge success. We got our message out there in a peaceful manner, while being surrounded by supporting laborers from all parts of our community. See the article below

Thank you Trades and Labor Assembly of Savannah, and CLC President Brett Hulme. The turn-out and show of support was beyond anything we could have imagined. We saw representation from over 20 different trade locals. Your support brought confidence to our members. Your support showed Savannah there is Solidarity in Trade Unionism throughout this city.

Thanks to Locals 52 and 491 for their support. 52 sent their support for our cause in the form of an email from their Executive Board. 491's field rep. Billy Fields came out and stood with us in a show of their Local's support

Thank you Local 320 for all your hard work. Because of you we had another successful show at the Lucas Theatre. Regardless of all the stress we encountered with the voting, we made it happen. I am very grateful for the confidence you all have shown in my leadership for the last year. Whatever happens with this theatre know that you are hands down the best Savannah has to offer.

MEMBERS our quarterly stamps have increased in price to $50 per quarter. Please make a note of it

Great job on Penn & Teller. Penn, Teller and their road crew mentioned their appreciation for such a good local crew

More good news for Local 320...We are listed in the 2002 phone book, finally. In the yellow pages under Labor Organizations and in the white pages under International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 320. For those of you who don't know, the hall # is 912.232.2203

In review of the past year I want to take this time, yet again, to express my pride in this Union. We are truly on the road to success here in Savannah. We are a working Local with jobs being contracted, referrals being made, all jobs are being paid (most in a timely fashion), and we are growing. We have had repeat business from several Employers that have been extremely happy with our performance on past jobs. Our hall is coming around, with the lights and phone service being turned on. We have had donations of furniture to make the seating at the hall comfortable. We have Brothers donating their time to revitalize "our" hall. We are listed in the yellow pages. We have this web-site. We are members of the Savannah Trades and Labor Council, aka the Savannah CLC. Soon we will have our first multi year contract in a Savannah venue. We are strong. We are proud. We are UNION.

Thanks to all the Brothers and Sisters that came together as one to help the London City Opera open "The Merry Widow" on the 6th of January. The hours were unusually long and at times trying but we persevered and succeeded. Many compliments from the London crew and the Production Manager Peter Smith. Keep up the good work!

ANY MEMBER 2 OR MORE QUARTERS IN ARREARS WILL BE EXPELLED AT THIS MEETING UNLESS DUES ARE PAID. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU MAY BE AT RISK YOU NEED TO CALL BRO. CHARLES LEVALLE IMMEDIATELY

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 false and others that are outright lies, I want to dispel those inaccuracies at the meeting. Personally, they don't even know enough about our organization to give an accurate account of our wants and desires. If any of you have any questions about this drive I want you to contact me immediately. 912.507.8558. I want to see 100% of the votes cast on voting day cast UNION YES!
In solidarity -Wayne

Great job to all the Brothers that worked the "First Night" celebration. We all worked together to make sound and light happen in the most professional fashion. What a great way to end the year
