Have a Say About Your pay!

Posted January 6, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this finds you all doing well. I would like to remind the Painters about upcoming negotiations for the Northern California Painters Master Agreement and the Sacramento Area Addendum. I will be visiting jobsites to get input from you to see what you would like in the new contract. We will also be having a meeting just for Painters on Tuesday January 31, 2023 at 5:30pm and on Tuesday February 28, 2023 to get more input from the members. We want to know what you want, so please make an effort to attend one of these meetings.

The work outlook looks pretty good for 2023. Hopefully with the recent weather it doesn’t delay projects too much. There are some good-sized projects soon beginning throughout the Sacramento region. Hopefully this helps keep everyone busy throughout the year. Remember to get on the out of work list if you are not working. A new list starts the first working day of the month. You can call or come into the office to put yourself on the list.

Don’t forget the regular monthly membership meeting is every second Monday of the month at 5:30 pm.

I hope you all have a great 2023.

In Solidarity,

William Gonzalez
District Council 16
Local Union 487
