Nor Cal Painter Strike

Posted July 5, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

 The Northern California Painters have voted no on their proposed contract. However, members from Local 487 are still under the Sacramento Area Addendum which expires on July 31, 2023. This means that Local 487 members continue to work as normal unless they were working in the Bay Area. If you were working in the Bay area you cannot return to work until the strike is over. If you were working on a project under a PLA in the Bay Area you will be allowed to return to work with a dispatch from you Local. We will be keeping everyone posted on any changes as we work through this process. I hope you all have a great 4th of July weekend. Be safe and enjoy your time with your families. 

In Solidarity,

William Gonzalez
