Metro JATC news:

We are happy to report that Cory Nelson has agreed to be the next Metro Area Apprenticeship Coordinator.  Cory was selected by a committee made up of both labor and management representatives.  The committee strongly believes he is the right person to keep the JATC program moving forward and manage the great resources available at the Training Center.

Cory completed a five-year Local 10 apprenticeship and has worked in our trade for over 20 years; all in the Metro Area.  He has work experience in all aspects of commercial sheet metal work, including HVAC, balancing, fire life safety and architectural.  Cory has been very involved in Local 10 and currently serves on the Executive Board and is a JATC Trustee.  Cory is currently employed as a General Foreman at Horwitz.

SMART COVID-19 Resources for Union Members


The available information about how the virus that causes COVID-19 spread is largely based on what is known about similar coronaviruses. However, COVID-19 is a new disease and there is more to learn about its transmission, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States. According to the CDC, a person may develop symptoms of the COVID-19 virus within 14 days of exposure. Symptoms include feeling sick with an acute respiratory illness, such as a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. As there is no present vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the CDC recommends the following to prevent the spread of the virus:


  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol;
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Stay home when sick;
  • Cover coughs or sneezes with tissues or cough into the elbow area, then discard the tissue in the trash and follow up with handwashing; and
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces regularly
