Important Elections

Posted June 2, 2022

Dear members of Local 507,

The Building Trades and the South Bay team have successfully negotiated another massive Project Labor Agreement on a $2.4 billion project, the Strada Verde Innovation Park. This project is on the north end of San Benito County.

For all Registered voters that live in Freemont, Measure G will be on the ballot on June 7th. Measure G would allow FUHSD to continue the renovation and modernization of all district high schools, providing all students and teachers with modern, functional classrooms and facilities. If passed this would secure $275 million dollars in work covered under a PLA, this means hours for the members.

For all registered voters that live in San Jose, Measure I will be on the ballot on June 7th. Measure I Will renew the existing annual parcel tax that provides funding for Alum Rock Union Elementary School District which correlates into renovations and modernizations which means hours for the members.

This is why it is crucial to make sure you are registered and get out and vote. A lot of hours are created at the ballot box through measures passed and election the candidates that back labor.

Best Regards,

Jose Espinosa
