Hear ye! Hear ye!

Thank You for Attending the DCSMEC CEU training!

Words cannot express how delighted I am that you were able to make it to the 2017 CEU training. You really helped to make this a special time for everyone who attended, and I hope you had a great time as well!

My heart is so full from getting to see everyone this year and how much our DCSMEC family has grown. So many changes in a year! Yet, we still remain the crazy, loving, Union family we have always been.

It was great to have John Mills back as our instructor. John will always be an honorary DCSMEC member. He has never forgotten where he came from, a very rare attribute these days. I personally want to thank John for his friendship and great personality. He is the greatest instructor ever, if you don’t believe me, just ask him.

CEU certificate’s will be ready for pick up on Monday, June 26, 2017 from your DCSMEC yard Representative and/or your Director’s personal assistant at your MSC.

If after you acquire your certificate you have any concerns, please email or contact our office at (305) 477-6002 fax (305) 477-0806.

Until then, in solidarity,

Rolando Sardiñas

Business Representative/
Chief negotiator
