Apprentice Graduation Dinner is back!

Posted July 19, 2022

On July 9th  the graduation dinner returned after a few years of not being able to hold the dinner due to COVID restrictions in Alameda County. It was great to see how excited and proud the new Journeymen were to get there certificates of completion! The training that they have received is by far the best in the industry and it gives us a bright future as a Union to know that these new journeymen will help carry Local 12 for years to come. I now hope these new journeymen take the next generation of apprentices under their wings and guide them to the next level.

I would like to acknowledge one of the graduates, Fredy Jimenez from R.E. Cuddie Co., for being the most outstanding apprentice of his class. Congratulations Fredy that is huge accomplishment that you should forever be proud of!
