From the Business Representative

In Perspective: Awards and Accomplishments

Whenever I meet with representatives from the AMPTP, I make a point of emphasizing that our members are the best craftspeople and technicians available anywhere. They are well informed on the latest technologies and skilled in their application. They work efficiently and provide the employer with the best quality outcome. The money paid in wages yields a dividend in results and productivity.

I urge members to continue to take advantage of courses and training opportunities offered through the Local to maintain that advantage in skill.

But, in this awards season, when Local 695 technicians feature so prominently among the nominees, I ask that you just take pride in the accomplishments of our members.

Please send me your thoughts on this perspective at
