The training was sponsored by AEP and contractor Graycor. The night shift attended the first session, and the day shift broke into two segments to attend training on the second and third days. L-374 BM-ST Dan McWhirter credited the training opportunity to the positive relationship among the union, owner and contractor. “Code training is typically handled on a voluntary basis and away from a live project,” he said. “The training at Rockport is a great example of tripartite partners cooperating to take advantage of a program that can benefit everyone.” Attending the class were, from L-374, McWhirter, Business Agent Douglas Ewell II, Terry Allen, Chris Alvey, Rex Below, Wayne Blakeman, Richard Boring, Brandon Boswell, Morgan DeJarnette, Christopher Driskell, Brandon Egdorf, Troy Flener, Cody Foster, Kevin Franzman, Michael Futrell, Daniel Gayer, Aaron Gonzales, Michael Grasela, Bryan Hall, Chris Hobgood, Tracy Howard, Zach Johnson, Larry Kalinowski, Gabe Lamar, Bryan Lester, Jared Lock, Richard Maier, Scott Marshall, James Masterson, Timothy McDonald, Kyle McPherson, Aaron Messmer, Aaron Monroe, Clayton Morgan, Mike Onyett, Seth Raetz, Tonya Rankin, Nathan Rice, William Huckleberry, Sammy Roberts, Tyler Schnell, Seth Scott, Travis Sitzman, Bryson Spears, Casey Sturgess, Jason Thomas, Travis Thomas, Warren Wolf, Brad Woodward, and Thomas Youngs.

I’m fine with using just the Class-3 photo below in the Reporter. Tim, lead with the Class-3 photo on the website and include the three posed group photos and the additional classroom shot of Ray Parrot. 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_L-374_Class-3 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_L-374_NightShift 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_Day2Group_L-374 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_Day3Group_L-374 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_RayParrot-1 [REPORTER ONLY] Caption for 2017_AEP_Rockport_CodeTng_L-374_Class-3: L-374 members listen to a presentation by MOST instructors Ray Parrot and Jim Porter.

CERCA DE 100 miembros del Local 374 (Hammond, Indiana) recibieron tiempo libre pagado por el entrenamiento del Código Boilermaker, durante un proyecto para instalar un sistema de reducción catalítica selectiva (SCR por sus siglas en inglés) en la planta AEP Rockport, en Indiana, del 21 al 23 de febrero. El entrenamiento fue patrocinado por AEP y el contratista Graycor.
