The next Union Meeting will be held on September 9th at 5:30pm.  Due to CDC guidelines, we are allowed to have a maximum of 50 members attend.  Pre-registration is required.  Call 585-235-1510 ext. 3 and speak with Holly to pre-register.

Our doors are open:

The Hall is open to visitors.  Follow the signs posted on doors and windows for social distancing.  Masks are required.

A Message from the Business Manager:

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

We will resume Union meetings starting September 9th at 5:30 pm. We are currently looking at a maximum of 50 people. That number could change based on CDC and NYS guidelines.  Members will be screened upon entry and masks must be worn at all times. The Sunshine club will not be open.

Anyone wishing to attend must call 585-235-1510 ext. 3 and speak with Holly to pre-register. When registration is full for September, you will be added to the October meeting registration.  We will keep track of attendance to help rotate through the membership, so every member interested may attend in the near future. This may not be a perfect solution, but it is important we have a Union meeting. 

Any significant vote will be a Notified meeting and we will facilitate the opportunity for the membership to vote in person using CDC guidelines at that time.

The meeting requirement for apprentices has been removed for the 2020-21 school year.

I appreciate your patience as we work through the challenges of the pandemic.  The safety of our members and their families is very important to me. Please call with any questions or concerns and check the Local 86 website the day of the Union meeting for any updates.

Local 86 Golf Tournament

With 96 golfers teeing it up in this year’s tournament, we had the largest turn out in the history of the tournament. Thank you to everyone who participated. I would also like to say a very special thank you to Michelle in the Union office who updates and generates all of the different lists that we need for registration, door prizes, separating the senior and regular divisions, etc.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners:

Regular Division- Steve Weiner, Brandon Longhany and Bob Flad with a winning score of 65.

Long Drive winner- Noah West

Closest to the Pin winner- K.P. Welling at 4 foot 3 inches

Senior Division- Dean Lapp, Bob Puleo, Bill Pinkerton, and Bob Strang with a winning score of 66.

Long Drive winner- Bob Puleo

Closest to the Pin- Since none of the seniors hit the green, we raffled off the Gift Card, congratulations to Kevin Ruscher

50/50 Raffle- Darryl Follette

Next year’s tournament should be back to our regular June date which is the first Saturday after Father’s Day (June 26, 2021).

Thanks again to everyone who helped with set up, registration and door prizes. Thank you again to Michelle and Holly in the Union Office and everyone who participated in this year’s tournament. I hope to see you all next year.

Finally, the best part of the tournament was being able to donate $767.67 to the James A. Versprille Scholarship Fund.

Thought for the day!

“We must elevate the craft, protect it’s interests, advance wages, reduce the hours of labor, spread correct economic doctrines and cultivate a spirit of fraternity among the working people regardless of creed, color, nationality or politics.  These principles are the foundation principles of our organization.” ~ Peter J. McGuire (labor leader credited with founding the first Labor Day parade)
