"My kids and I have been overwhelmed by the tremendous outpouring of love and support that Joe's local carpenters' union and other unions have demonstrated to our family. I can't say "Thank you!" enough to Joe's coworkers on the 520 bridge project who remodeled our house so we could stay there, for the numerous pass-the-hat donations from several unions, and for the spaghetti dinner to help raise funds for us. All of these efforts, along with many other gestures of love and kindness, have blessed us and helped immensely.
Joe dedicated his life to loving God, loving his family, and loving and serving people-and I feel like everything is coming full circle. Joe and I volunteered for two years at a free school in Mexico, educating children who would otherwise be working in the fields. Joe also spent half of his days there building homes for poor families who would never be able to afford a home on their own. Now, when Annalise, Preston, and I find ourselves needing a lot of support, the community is reaching out and taking care of our needs.
Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us, donated money, donated their time, sent a card, or given us flowers. We will always remember how generously the brothers and sisters of the trades have reached out and cared for us." ___________________________________________________________________

Register on the out of work list if you are filing for unemployment
Some members have received a notice from Employment Security that there is an issue with their standing in the Local. In most cases it is NOT because you are not in good standing..it is because you did not get registered on the out of work list. We cannot express strongly enough that if you are drawing unemployment benefits you must call mix 20/20 to register on the out of work list. This would be for everyone, even if your employer is bringing you back! __________________________________________________________________________
