Please be sure to stop by and vote for 1 of the three choices picked by the Local Union 294 Executive Board.

Painters and Floor Coverers DC16 Leadership are continuing Negotiations on your Northern California Painters and Floor Covering Master Agreements. Once negotiations are completed and the members ratify the agreements, we will start the process of negotiating the Sacramento and Fresno Addendums to those Master Agreements. YOU HAVE A VOTE ON THE MASTER AGREEMENTS SO WHEN NOTIFIED SHOW UP AND VOTE! We will also be sending out surveys for your wants in the addendum through the UNITE text and Email system beginning Monday June 5th, 2023.
