  • COMET Training for Local 597 Members

    Per the request of ALL of the members that were in attendance at the Open Discussion Meeting held on Wednesday, August 23, our Local will be hosting a COMET class on Saturday, October 7, 2017 beginning at 8:00 am.  COMET stands for Construction Organizing Membership Education Training and is a crucial course to educate us, as members, to our responsibilities of gaining more members and ultimately growing our marketshare in our industry.  We expect all of the members that offered their commitment that evening to be in attendance and trust that all members who were not in attendance will accept the invitation to attend as well.  This class will be hosted with the support of the Southeastern States District Council and our International.  All members are highly encouraged to  actively attend and participate and bring another members along with them.  The future of our Local is in our hands and we must have everyone on board to ensure the ultimate success.  If you have any questions, please contact our Union Hall.
