Holiday Awards Ceremony

On Saturday December 7th 2019 Bricklayer and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 Washington and Alaska honored members for reaching milestones of 25 and 40 continuous years of service. Also included in the event were a couple recent Apprentice to Journeyperson graduates and the Royal Higbee Apprentice of the Year award.

We would like to once again congratulate and thank the members for their dedication to our Union and the Masonry Industry. While this event has only been open to the award recipients for quite a few years, the Local 1 Management Committee is looking into opening this event to the general membership in December of 2020. In the meantime please enjoy the pictures from this event and make sure to congratulate these members if you see or speak to them in the future.
