Tapers – 18

If you are a Painter that is out-of-work, please call the Local.

Some of the Taping dispatches have been coming from Flores Drywall, Custom Drywall, and MGM Drywall.

Please be advised that the upcoming Saturday, August 12th SCT Introduction to DC16 and the Finishing Trades Association class is CANCELLED. The next SCT class on the calendar is scheduled for Saturday, September 16th in Sacramento. Thank you for your continued support and participation in the SCT curriculum.
