What's New at IUEC 10
Welcome to the Hall

I would like to take a moment and congratulate and welcome Brother Ralph Gray to the Union Hall.  Ralph left Otis to run for and become the newest Business Agent here at Local #10.  I worked with Ralph at Schindler Elevator for several years before I came to the Union Hall, so Ralph and I know each other well.  I believe that Ralph will be a good addition to the team here at Local #10.

Congrats, Ralph, and welcome aboard.

Thank you, Brother, for a job well done

I would like to take a moment and thank John "Reggie" Garner for a job well done.  I had the pleasure of working with Reggie at Schindler Elevator for a number of years and when I came to the Union Hall he was elected to the Business Office.  It was like old home week, Joe Mickesh, Dave Geib, Reggie and myself all worked at Schindler together.  Reggie has always been a very hard worker and being here at the Hall was no different.  Thank you, Reggie, for being a great co-worker and a great boss.  I wish you all the best and hope that you won't forget to call every now and again just to say hello.

Thank you to the membership and retirees

Elaine and I would like to thank the membership and our retirees for all of the goodies and the Christmas presents you have given us.  We are truly thankful to be a part of the best trade in the country and to be working for you.  We are a big family, here at Local #10, and during the holidays we reflect on how very lucky we are to be a part of it.  We hope that you and your families have the most wonderful Christmas holiday and a very happy New Year.  We hope that 2020 will be full of happiness and fulfillment for all.

Merry Christmas and please stay close to those you love.  Tis the season to make magical memories.

UPDATE 12/19/19:  Thank you very much to the member, or members, who sent the fruit basket to us today.  It was very enjoyable.  The card was very nice but we would love to know who sent it so we can thank them directly.

Lee C Ashcraft Scholarship 2020

The law firm of Ashcraft & Cerel, LLP has always valued their connection with the Washington, DC Building & Construction Trades union movement.  In recognition of this special relationship, the firm established a Union Scholarship Program more than 40 years ago.  We are pleased to honor this commitment by providing a scholarship in  memory of Lee C. Ashcraft.

The law firm of Ashcraft & Gerel, LLP offers this scholarship to the Washington, DC Building & Construction Trades active members and their immediate family to help with the high cost of education.  Each year we award a one-time grant of $5,000.00 to an eligible student for education expenses.  Previous winners of the scholarship are ineligible to participate.

If you, your spouse or child, plan to pursue education or training full-time, you can apply now.  Applicants must be enrolled for their post-high school education or training by Fall of 2020 to be eligible for this year's award.

A committee of union volunteers screen the applications and a finalist is chosen by an independent party.  No one at Ashcraft & Gerel, LLP participates in the selection process.  This is an equal opportunity program, conducted without regard to race, gender, religion, age or disability.

March 6, 2020 is the deadline to submit your application.  To obtain your scholarship application, please call Elaine or Tammie at the Union Hall, 301-459-0497, or Lilana Chang at Ashcraft & Gerel, LLP at 703-931-5500.

Best of luck to all who apply.

Rest in Peace Dear Brother

The Officers and Members of Local #10, International Union of Elevator Constructors, are hereby notified of the passing of Honorary Brother Landon E. Walker on December 11, 2019.  Graveside services will be held on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 2:00 pm @ Trinity Memorial Gardens in the Garden of Life, 3221 Mattawoman Beantown Road, Waldorf, MD 20602.

I was once told, by a Local #10 Mechanic, that Landon Walker was the smartest elevator man ever put on earth by God.  God now has the best elevator man ever to come to Heaven.  Landon was one of the nicest, down to earth people you could ever meet.  He was just an all around good person and let that be known to everyone he met.  You will be greatly missed, Brother.  Until we meet again, may you rest in peace.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Walker family in this time of sorrow.
