OP&CMIA Western Pennsylvania Membership Unity Day


On May 7, 2011 Members of Local Union's 31 and 526 of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania gathered with our families at the OP&CMIA Western Pennsylvania Training Facility for an afternoon of fun, food and services. The afternoon was filled with games for the kids, benefits and services for families, and good friends that we haven't seen in a while.


UPMC Health Care provided a non-fasting prostate cancer screening, Mobile Medical Corporation was on hand to allow Members to update their drug free certification, Cowden & Associates and the Pittsburgh Pirates raffled 3 sets of tickets to upcoming Pirates baseball games, American Income Life provided information on free and low cost benefits available to Union Members, the Allegheny County Sherriff's office was on hand providing child ID and fingerprinting crime prevention services and Tracey & Associates provided health insurance information and options.


The kids (even the adult kids) played t-ball, tried their hand at the football toss and even had an opportunity to "Dunk the Agent".


We all enjoyed a picnic style lunch catered by Tommy's Catering.


While a good time was had by all, the emphasis was on Unity, from top to bottom, Plasterers and Cement Masons unified with each other. In the days after the event we have received several phone calls from Members to tell us what a great time they had and to request that we pass along their gratitude to General President Finley, Secretary Treasurer Hurd and Executive Vice-President Stepano for taking time out of their busy schedules to enjoy the day with us.


The effort was organized by the Local's and paid for with donations from our vendors. In the end the Members who attended will receive more than $3,000.00 in gift cards and prizes thanks to the enormous generosity of those who donated. Monetary Donations were received from: American Income Life (local), Business Systems Consultants, Cowden & Associates, Domenic A. Bellisario Esq., Employees of Highmark BCBS, Fifth Third Retirement Services, Greco Advertising, Kramer & DiClaudio PC, National Vision Administrators, PNC Bank, Prescription Solutions, Shiloh Service Inc., and UPMC Healthcare.
