A Message from the webmaster:

20 years of coding and 3 different web hosts. Now Pyramid MDT has brought us a new, clean, secure website.
As I slowly fade into the sunset, now any member can design and build the Union website.
Though the President and VP dictate some of the content, I have tried to keep a tongue in cheek approach and express the feelings from the locker room on issues that arise.
I encourage the next generation to keep this union strong, participate, donate your time, and always in solidarity!
