We are getting busy in Sacramento and the surrounding areas. If you are not currently working RJ, Inc and ProSpectra are looking for journeymen and apprentices. Also, if you are not working, please put yourself on the Out-of-Work List and give me a call. Please remember that to remain on the Out-of-Work List you must call in the first day of each month.
Last Thursday the Northern California Floor Covering Master Agreement was ratified, the final tally was 351 in favor of and 87 against. The contract is a one-year contract with no changes in language and is worth $4.00. What does this mean to you? This means that the Sacramento Addendum will be a yearlong contract. Negotiations will begin soon and as soon as we have an offer you will be notified.
I want to take this time to ask you if you are getting email or letters from the local? If you are not, please call the office and let us know. We are trying to get with the latest technology and go paperless, but we need your help.
Saturday June 11th there will be elections for DC16 BM/ST and Business Rep. for Local 1512 Floor Covering (Las Vegas). Voting will be from 7 am to 3 pm. I can’t tell you how important this vote is for all of us. You need to come out and vote for the person who will be the BM/ST for the next 4 years. This person will make all the decisions on how the council works, where market recovery is spent and what direction we go in to create work hours. It’s all up to you!
