WelcomePaused What's New at IUEC 10
I got an email from DLLR this morning. There is an email scam potentially targeting License renewals in the state of Maryland. Not just elevator, but all areas needing to be licensed. Please make sure you are sure of any email that you may or may not respond to. If you need to ask questions, please do not hesitate to call me. I work very hard to keep contacts in all areas where you need a license, so that being said, I can reach out to the people I deal with and make sure you are on track.
I have attached a copy of the email so that you may see it. Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing should also send you a copy, if they have your email on file. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

After speaking with a Virginia Inspector this morning, Zeppy has asked me to post, again, in reference to the Virginia Elevator Mechanic License. The 2018 Code, which references Code A.17.16, "If a Elevator Mechanic does not have a valid Virginia Elevator Mechanics License, he shall not be allowed to work on Elevators in the State of Virginia." If you are caught working without a license you shall be fined. That being said, your company may also be fined. This Code will STRICKLY be enforced and go into effect July 1, 2021. Like the other areas we work in (DC, MD, and WV) your license number will be needed on ALL inspection forms when doing ANY type of inspection. It is highly recommended, by the Union Hall, that if you are a Mechanic and you work in the State of Virginia, you make sure you submit an application for that license as soon as possible. I am more than willing to help anyone, that needs assistance, at the Union Hall. I have the applications here, we can make the color copy of your driver's licese, and get your NEIEP Certificate Statement. All of these are needed to attached with your application. If you need my help, please just call me and let me know that you are coming by so I can get things together, on my end, and take up as little of your time as possible.
Attached below, is a copy of the Articles from DPOR in reference to your license. The Virginia License has been in effect for 10 - 12 years now. Why some, who work in Virginia, did not get it when it went into effect, I don't know, but I do know that they are now going to inforce it, STRICKLY!!!

Just so everyone knows, John did do an article for February 2021. He sends his articles to me and I add pictures and forward to the International for publish. John sent his article on 12/30 (the articles are a month behind, so February was due by January 1st), I typed it up added the pictures and hit send. The thing is, I thought I hit send and I did not. The article and the pictures were in my draft file. I did not notice that until the following week. It was too late then for me to send it. It has to be there by the 1st or it is not published. Not to make excuses, because it IS MY FAULT that the article did not make it to publish, but it was end of the month, dues, Elaine was on vacation, and I was going in many different directions.
I wanted to say that I am very sorry that Local #10 does not have an article in the Constructor for February. It will not happen again from my side. Please do not call John and give him a hard time, he did what he was supposed to do, I did not.
We received a very nice Thank You note from Josh Seibel and his family today at the Union Hall. It is addressed to the IUEC family, so I wanted to put it where everyone can see it. Josh was the helper who had a very ugly accident on the job December 3rd, just before Christmas. A group of Brothers and Sisters made a trip down to Josh's house, just before the holidays, to do some things to prepare his family for the holidays. Santa went along to visit with Josh's daughter and deliver her a few toys, they cleaned up the yard, did a few small repairs and then had lunch together. They have also received cards from Brothers and Sisters all over the country. We are one big family and when a family member is hurting, we are all hurting. I have attached a copy of the note below. Just click on and you can read it for yourself.
Our best wishes go out to Josh and his family, and our hope is he will be back on the job real soon.

Just for those interested, the new Hoodies have arrived at the Union Hall. We have 2 new designs. We have also received the zip up sweat jackets as well. You may stop by the Union Hall to purchase one, if you would like, but you MUST wear a mask when entering the Union Hall building.
