June Review

Posted June 28, 2024

Summer is here and work is really starting to pick up. If you are seeking a job contact the hall to be put in contact with shops that need guys for projects. The year is halfway over. Don’t forget that starting January 1, 2025, in order to be dispatched to a company you will need to have a valid Fall Protection, and Booms & Lifts certificate.

With this being a big election year, there is an abundance of VAC opportunities to participate in, while helping to get Pro Labor candidates in to office that will help us secure good Union Jobs. Local 913 has Duel Endorsed two candidates for SF Mayor. Ahsha Safai & Mark Farrell. After Meeting with the 4 top candidates, and reviewing past practices of them in their previous positions, we feel either candidate would help to return San Francisco to the Great City it once was.  See Photos From Ahsha’s Campaign Headquarters grand opening, & Press conference of the announcement of the SF Building Trades Council Duel Endorsement of Farrell & Safai. Along with a labor breakfast with State Attorney General Rob Bonta.

The membership of Local 913 made a motion, and passed funds to purchase a bay fishing trip with East Bay Fish Co. on the SF Bay. Spots on the Charter got raffled off at the June Membership Meeting. The trip was a huge success. See photos below. If you are interested in things like this attend the local meetings. Things like this along with fundraiser dinners and more activities are available through meeting attendance. A Crab Fishing trip in the fall is up for discussion.
