Glaziers Local 1621,
I want to start by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Please take this time to spend it with your families and loved ones.
The membership has decided to cancel the December 12th, 2023, union meeting so we will see everyone at our regular schedule meeting on the 9th of January at 6:30pm.
I have received some calls about whether we are having a holiday party. As most know we have them every other year due to the cost of the party so currently the Eboard has it scheduled for December 7th, 2024, at the same location Hayes Mansion in San Jose.
Work picture for 2024 is looking slow from talking with companies. A lot of companies have had jobs postponed and will not be picking back up until March or April of 2024. Which probably really means June or July. With that said if you are a Journeyman out of work it is the perfect time to get up to date on your certifications. Check the Star Program website (https://www.dc16star.org/).
The Glaziers Master Agreement contract is up on June 30th of 2024. So, we will be reaching out in the early months of the year for feedback on the members’ wants and needs for the upcoming contract. As always do not schedule any vacation in the month of July 2024 just in case we go on Strike.
