A large thank you to everyone who volunteered at the MN State Fair labor booth for Local 10. This has been an important opportunity all these years to show case Local 10 talents to the public. Without this help we could not do this. We want to acknowledge and thank Mark Szybatka for all of his coordination through the many years of this event. Mark has coordinated the schedule of people for each shift and made sure that they had all of the material needed to make the copper roses and tool trays for the kids.

From JIM BOWMAN - Business Manager/President
The first SMART General convention was recently held on August 11-15, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Along with myself, I sent all of the elected Business Representatives from Local 10 to be with the rest of the over 1,000 delegates to listen to reports and to take action on the amendments presented to them. There were 19 committees that brought items back to be discussed and voted on. They all met the previous week of the convention. Greg Andrist was selected for the HVAC service committee and I was the secretary of the GEC Special Report committee. On Monday, I presented a report to the convention on the GEC and the secretary-treasurer decisions for the last five years. There were over 200 amendments presented during the week. One of the amendments was changing the two man rule for travelling to a four man rule which I spoke against to the body. We did get this amendment voted down by a large majority. A lot of the amendments pertained to the UTU and language in the constitution. It was a full productive week for all of us and it finished up late Friday afternoon.
