NEW JANAURY BIGGIES!
Congratulations to Southeast’s Jennifer Coleman who won the 2018 January Biggie Jackpot for her new product idea. Her idea of a gelled descaler with longer cling time for use with cooling towers and other industrial applications brings United 516 ESA VERTICAL VANQUISHER Gelled Industrial Multi-Purpose Descaler to the line. As her reward for this idea, she’ll get a 2% bonus for all sales of this product during 2018.
In addition, we’re also introducing United 517 ESA POWER-GEL Washroom and Urinal Cleaner-Descaler. For your customers who loved United 481 ESA POWER-PUCK last year for keeping urinal drains flowing freely; this new product offers maximum clinging and cleaning power for use on the toughest build-up on the urinal bowls, shower walls and other acid-resistant fixtures.

2018 Federal Tax Reform
Last week the president signed into law The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Many employees are anticipating reduced taxes to be withheld from their paychecks. Due to the late signing of this law, the IRS will not have the new tax tables available on January 1st. As soon as the IRS releases the new tax tables payroll services will be able to update their software and United can begin withholding at the new tax rates.

Do Your Military Bases Use EESOH-MIS?
Our Military uses the EESOH-MIS system to manage risk of exposure to environmental and occupational factors. This system allows them to share information across different functional areas to try to stay in compliance and make sure they are working with the correct data. Not all bases use this system, but if your military customers do, it can be a benefit to you and United as it will allow them to do searches for NSN numbers that have been previously established.
We also have a listing of previously established NSN numbers available through our Sales Tools/Downloads menu. Click here to view that listing.
Conforming with New OSHA Regulations
New regulations mandate that all employees must be trained on new OSHA Hazardous Communication Standards that are being phased into use. All new hires will need to be trained and we still have a number of quizzes outstanding. Training materials and a printed copy of the quiz are included in every start kit. These quizzes must be returned to the Home Office. Also, please take 25 minutes to view a video that will help with your understanding of the changes.
If you have not yet returned your quizz, please do so as soon as possible. If you need a copy of the quiz or booklet, please contact Debbie Nehmer (x7424 or firstname.lastname@example.org) right away.
