On April 25, 2015 IUPAT District Council 7 hosted their 10th Annual Star event to reward members who participated in the innovative safety program. The event was well attended by members and their families. Many great prizes were awarded including cordless tool sets, fishing charters, electronics and more.
The two grand prizes, 2015 Chevrolet Equinox’s, were won by members of Local 802 (Big Bend, Wisconsin), Tony Leggett and Erin Becker. Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer Joe Jazdzewski congratulated them and gave them the keys to their new vehicles.
The acronym STAR stands for Safety Training Awards Recognition; it is a program that was developed to promote safe work practices on the job site. Members qualify for STAR awards by participating in advanced safety training classes and maintaining safe work practices on the job.
