LU 487 Update!

Posted March 23, 2024

Brothers and Sisters,

We have been getting busy. There are jobs that are getting completed but at the same time there are several large projects getting ready to start Drywall and Painting. Please remember to contact the Union Hall if you are not working, at (916)393-2742. A lot of members sit and wait on getting called back by the employer they were working for and that could sometimes end up being weeks or even months. There are many members that have managed to stay busy when their regular employer slows down by getting on the out-of-work list. I have been speaking to our contractors and they are saying the workload is pretty solid for 2024. 

With that being said, our apprentices are advancing to higher level and some are completing the apprenticeship program and becoming journey level workers. Congratulations to Jesus Franco our latest graduate from the Commercial Painting Apprenticeship Program and Stephen Uhrly who recently completed the Drywall Finishing Program. Good luck to you both in your career as Journey Workers in your craft. We will soon be looking for new apprentices so if you know anyone who is interested in our trades, please have them contact the union hall so we can point them in the right direction.  

Don’t forget meetings are very 2nd Monday of the month at 5:30pm at the Union Hall. We will be raffling River Cats and Sac Republic FC tickets at the next meeting.

Best Regards,

William Gonzalez
