Just when you thought it couldn't get worse it does. Holding out hope for honesty and transparency in the IUOE seems pretty hopeless after reading the declaration from former Hazmat guru Donald Carson. For years Don ran the prestigious Hazmat Training Center in Beckley West Virginia. It was a showpiece for the IUOE and a source of pride for the average IUOE member who thought he was a part of a bigger and much better union. Beckley provided curriculum, technical services and direct training to local union instructors. This enables them to deliver Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER), OSHA Construction and General Industry Outreach, MSHA Miner and other safety and health courses. NHP train-the-trainer and trainer refresher classes provide instructors with the necessary technical skills and knowledge related to workplace hazards so they could teach classes at their home local union training programs.There was a great deal accomplished there, great training, great progress, and great recognition of a union keeping ahead of the curve. But alas the insidious side of our IUOE comes through again, with stealing, corruption and lies, and the battle to maintain supremacy in a world of highly paid do nothings.
