Brothers and Sisters,
Brother Chris Burnett and I represented Glaziers Local Union 718 and our communities and attended the California Labor Federation Joint Legislative Conference. We heard from political representatives in favor of legislation to keep working conditions as a priority and protect the right to organize and collectively bargain. We also spent time speaking with our representative’s in our state assembly including David Chui, Marc Berman, Kevin Mullin, Josh Becker, Phil Ting and senator Scott Weiner. Along with delegates of the Central Labor Councils and Building Trades Councils of San Francisco and San Mateo counties we brought to the attention of these politicos the bills that will benefit working people in our regions and the bills that would be detrimental.
On the job: Highrise Glass is wrapping up the project at 1001 Van Ness. A couple pictures of brothers from LU718, LU169, and LU1621 on site. Brothers Johnny, Manny, Kevin, and Jose installing some frames in the lower lobby on the Van Ness side of the building.
Work safe, stay safe, and stay healthy! In solidarity, Business Rep. Bart Pantoja.
