Just want to wish Phil Demino a Happy 89th Birthday. Phil has been retired for 27 years and is still going strong. Happy Birthday Dad. 27 years of collecting a pension, I think that's awesome. Even though the 401k plan wasn't in affect when he retired, I stress to all the younger and newer members to think long term, once we retire what we have has to last. Work safe... Steve Demino

It is with heavy heart that I pass along some sorrowful news to dampen our Holidays.  I just found out that Kenny Kuhn passed away this morning.  KK was at our luncheon on Wednesday and although he wasn't feeling all that well, I never thought that he would pass.  Vickie said that he had a problem with his blood sugar.  Kenny will be cremated and there will be a Memorial Service after the Holidays.
 
On another sad note, I just found out from Local #1 that Tom Cunneely passed away.  Tom and I worked together in Brooklyn many years ago.  He was a super mechanic and he was always there when you needed him.  Funeral arrangements are listed below.
 
Please keep both families in your prayers.

I had the privalege of working with tony in the original WTC for many years. Not only did he teach me many things about the industry he taught me how to deal with peolple. A trait he excelled in. He generated and fought for a lot of our work in those towers and kept a lot of brothers and sisters working. He always had a smile on his face but those who saw that as a sign of weakness were quickly schooled otherwise. He took no shit!!! He treated us all like he treated his own family that he loved so much. There will never be another like him. Rest in peace brother. ILL never forget you!!!!! Geezer

The Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee for the New York City District Council of Carpenters will conduct a recruitment from August 15, 2016 through August 26, 2016 for 100 carpenter apprentices, the New York State Department of Labor announced today.

 

Applicants must obtain a lottery card, in person, at the NYCDCC Training Center, 395 Hudson Street (Clarkson Street entrance), New York City, NY, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays, during the recruitment period. There will be no admittance after 10:00 a.m. Only the applicant will be allowed to complete a lottery card.  Lottery cards will be available for 10 business days or until 250 lottery cards have been issued, whichever comes first. In order to receive a lottery card, applicants must provide government-issued picture identification. Once the lottery card is fully completed, the applicant will place the lottery card in a locked box. 

Applicants who completed a lottery card will be randomly selected from the locked box as demand for carpenter apprentices is anticipated. Applicants who are selected will be mailed a letter to attend an initial applicant orientation. Applicants must arrive on time, or they will be disqualified from further consideration. At the start of the initial orientation, applicants will be given an application that must be completed and returned before the end of the orientation. At the conclusion of the orientation, applicants will be scheduled for an interview at a future date and will be provided with an instruction sheet which will include a list of documents that will be required if they are accepted into the program. Applicants who do not arrive on time to their scheduled interview will be disqualified from further consideration. 

The Committee requires that applicants:

  • Must be at least 17 years old at the time of application.
  • Must have a high school diploma or a high school equivalency diploma (such as TASC or GED). Proof will be required after selection and prior to indenture.
  • Must be physically able to perform the work of the trade without posing a direct threat to the safety of themselves or others.
  • Must pass a substance abuse screening, at the expense of the sponsor, within 48 hours of selection and prior to indenture. Applicants that do not pass the substance abuse screening will be notified and disqualified from further consideration.
  • Must provide proof of any trade-related experience, certification, or education, after selection and prior to indenture.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or have the legal right to work in the United States. Proof will be required after selection and prior to indenture.
  • Must have reliable means of transportation to and from various job sites and related instruction classes.
  • Must provide military discharge form DD-214, if applicable, after selection and prior to indenture.

For further information, applicants should contact their nearest New York State Department of Labor office or the NYC District Council of Carpenters JATC at (212) 727-2224.

Apprentice programs registered with the Department of Labor must meet standards established by the Commissioner. Under state law, sponsors of programs cannot discriminate against applicants because of race, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, disability, or marital status. Women and minorities are encouraged to submit applications for apprenticeship programs. Sponsors of programs are required to adopt affirmative action plans for the recruitment of women and minorities.

Westchester police exam applications due July 25

The exam is usually given only once every four years; next offering will be 2020.

WHITE PLAINS - Applications are being accepted now through July 25 for the civil service exam for police officers in Westchester County municipalities.  The Westchester County Department of Public Safety and all local police departments, except Yonkers, White Plains, New Rochelle and Mount Vernon, hire from this list.

The exam will be administered on Nov. 19, 2016, and anyone wanting to take it must apply by July 25 with the county Department of Human Resources at humanresources.westchestergov.com.

Because the exam is usually given only once every four years, those who want to be a police officer must take the exam now or likely wait until 2020.

To be eligible to take the exam, applicants must, at the time of the examination and for at least one month prior to the exam, be legal residents of Westchester County and have earned a high school diploma or its equivalency. On the day of exam, they may not be over age 35, unless they are a veteran of the armed forces as defined by New York state law.  Police officer candidates cannot be appointed until they turn 20, but can take the test before then.

Those who pass the test are put on a list ranked by test score, and the list is used to hire police officers as positions become available. The test will be administered at various locations within the county. Specific locations will be announced before the November exam.

There’s also a separate application for the title of Police Officer (Spanish Speaking). The county encourages those who are bilingual in English and Spanish to apply for both titles, requiring two separate applications and fees. This is the only way to appear on both lists and have the possibility of being hired for whichever title becomes available, even though there is only one written exam in English. There will be an oral proficiency Spanish exam for those who pass the written exam.

Details about the fee waivers, the language proficiency examination and other information are described in the official examination announcement athumanresources.westchestergov.com. For more information, contact the county Department of Human Resources at exam@westchestergov.com or 914-995-2123.
