Local 520 is excited to announce that our own Matthew Gursslin won the 2017 Seventh District Apprenticeship Contest!

The best apprentices over 5 states go head to head performing trade skill tasks and utilizing theory. The competition combines safety, accuracy of practical tasks and a written test of electrical theory and codes. Contestants must solve problems covering complex motor controls and hook up three-phase and buck-boost transformers.

Brother Gursslin has been a Local 520 member since 2013 and is an active member of RENEW.

Over the past 40 years other Local 520 winners include:

Please help congratulate Matt on an excellent job. His success is well deserved and we are proud to have him as part of the Local 520 brotherhood.
