Member Appreciation Award

The award is given to recognize an active member who performs an outstanding act.

October 2013 - Wesley Scott

Wesley has been a key player in manning difficult projects for Local 24. Difficult projects include working nights, projects in outlying areas, projects with extreme weather conditions and long hours.  Time and time again Wesley has manned these projects which allow our employers to continue to secure work through-out Colorado and Kansas. 

September 2013 – Victor Bentley

Victor has been a member of Local 24 from 1989 and has been an avid supporter of Local 24’s Journeyman Upgrade Training.  He gone well above the required training and has maintained all current certification included 1st Aid and CPR.  Victor displayed his leadership skills and took control of a difficult situation. He controlled a group gathered around their mother and performed CPR until the medical team arrived. 

August 2013 – Randy Hoskins

Randy was job steward for OlsenBeal on the Buffalo Gap Wind Farm located in Ulysses, Kansas. Because of his leadership and ability to communicate with the Iron Workers and the employer, the job was a success.  The weather conditions and the location of the wind farm made the project challenging. It is extremely difficult for our employers to compete with the non-union wind turbine erectors. Because of the craftsmanship and team work from our Iron Workers, OlsenBeal and other union employers will continue to bid and secure work for our membership. 

July 2013 – Jimmie Cordova

Jimmie was instrumental in the development of Local 24’s Safety Committee. He also achieved the Safety Trained Supervisor (STS) certification administered by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP). The program is designed to provide a means for employers to verify safety and health knowledge of first-line supervisors and managers. The program requires applicants to meet minimum education and experience requirements and demonstrate knowledge of basic safety and health standards and practices. Because of Jimmies hard work, he accomplished the goal of the Safety Committee and secured a job as a Safety Supervisor for a major steel erection company. 

June 2013 - Greg Martin

Greg was the first Local 24 member to achieve the Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) Certification administered by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP). 
The Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) certification is designed for individuals who demonstrate competency and work part-time or full-time in health and safety activities devoted to the prevention of construction illnesses and injuries.
