March’s union meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at the Lansing Hall, 5405 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Lansing, MI. 48911 at 7:30pm.

Notice: Local 333 will be considering the final phase of the Hall remodel at the March meeting. The proposed remodel will include a new Veterans Memorial Wall at the front entrance of the Hall. In preparation for such a tribute, I am asking that all Veterans from Local 333 call Debra at the Lansing Hall at 517-393-5480 and give her your name, military branch and years of service. If you know of a deceased member who was a Veteran, please help us with whatever information you may have. Thank you for your time and your service.

Special Call Meeting: A Special Call Meeting will be held On March 18th, 2020 at 7:30pm to discuss in detail the proposal to complete the Lansing Hall Renovation which has been a work in progress for the past few years. The final proposal consists of the meeting hall, bathrooms and corridor between the two. The funding is set aside to pay for the renovation in full. NO new money is needed. The meeting will be held at the Lansing Hall located at 5405 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Lansing, MI. 48911. A vote will be held at the conclusion of the meeting to approve the expenditure.

ATTENTION: The Local 333 JATC is accepting Resumes for a new full-time Instructor. Resumes will be accepted at the Local 333 Training Center starting on January 27th. Resumes can be dropped off between 8am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday at 16180 National Parkway Lansing, MI. 48906. The deadline for Resumes is February 10th at 4:30pm. Applicants should have well rounded knowledge of our Trade as well as HVAC experience. The addition to the staff is due to an increase in the amount of Apprentices in the program due to a heavy work load and the steady retirements in Local 333.
