Our Next Meeting 2/15

Posted February 12, 2024

At our next regular called meeting, we have some important taking place and everyone should attend. First, we will be having an election for Member-at-Large Executive Board position. Journeymen Hugo Gutierrez from Golden State and Journeymen Keith Byrd from Andersons will be running for the position that will help shape our Union and its structure. Our 11-member Executive Board consists of a President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, Treasurer, Warden, (4) Trustees and a Member-at-Large. They are tasked with many items that make our union operate and stay in compliance with the Department of Labor. I would personally like to thank them for donating their time and energy for the betterment of the Union and its membership. Our Union is your union, so I invite all members who would like to step up and be a leader in it.

Second important item that will be discussed is our 2025 wage increase of $3.25 that would be applied on January 1, 2025. The wage allocation vote will not be taking place at this meeting, but we will begin the talks of the 3 options we will be voting on in a future meeting. If you did not know, our current contract raises for C.B.A. are:

2024 – $3.00

2025 – $3.25

2026 – $3.75

2027 – $4.00

As you know, those raises get allocated by the membership so it is very important that you participate in the process because you have a voice of where your money will go.
