Quarterly Updates from the Desk of SMW Local 40 Business Manager David Roche

Dear Brothers and Sisters, First and Formost i would personally like to thank our membership for their patience and understanding as we have navigated through Covid-19, it has been quite an experience one that none of us ever had to or thought we would face, as many of you might have heard i was appointed by Governor Ned Lamont to serve on his Business Advisory Council to RE-Open CT, not only was it an honor to be the Labor Reepresentative on the board it was also difficult to know that the decisions you make could mean someone coming down with Covid-19 and potentially be life threatening, when Governor Lamont was considering wheather or not to close down Construction Projects, i wasnt sure what we should do especially since Boston,New York and Yale University had already shut down construction, i talked to a lot of other Business managers from the trades and felt if the Governor would put proper guidelines in place our members who are all OSHA trained would stand to the test and we could keep working, Governor Lamont listened and our members responded, we continued to work on a lot of projects and because of the great work of our members throughout the trades we had low numbers of infections. 

This is why i believe we have the safest and best trained workers available, Once again we rose to the occasion and performed at the highest level.   

Thank you for all that you do, to you and youre families please Stay Safe.

Sincerly, David Roche Business Manager S.M.A.R.T. Local #40
