Need to finance your welding equipment?
ABFCU is now offering financing on new and used welding equipment to members of Local 798! Visit us at http://www.abfcu.org or call 1-800-227-8968 to apply.
During Steward School 2015, we discussed the situation regarding DOT numbers on welding rigs. Due to the advisory opinion provided by FMCSA, we believe it is in our Members best interest to comply with the regulations requiring a DOT number on a welding rig.
National Transportation Consultants, Inc. was introduced as a group who can provide valuable assistance to our members. They can provide assistance to members in obtaining their DOT numbers, and with keeping them in compliance with all DOT regulations, and also assist with any legal problems should they occur. Please see the related information below, and contact National Transportation Consultants at 317 770-0953.
On Monday April 20th The 798 Hall will be changing over to a new phone system to better serve you. During the morning on April 20th the phone system will be up and down so you may not be able to get through. Please be patient as we anticipate this to be completed by 12pm CST.
