The Northern California Painters have been on strike since the expiration of the 2020-2023 collective bargaining agreement. Two proposals from management were voted down before the contract expired on July 1st. It was clear that the members wanted to make a stand to get what they deserved. Members have been picketing their contractors’ shops to send the message that they would not take the low offers. Some contractors tried bringing in strike breakers to continue our work and weaken our lines. When that would happen, we mobilize & picket the jobsite. In most cases, shutting the job down completely.

Although the strike puts a burden on everyone, most spirts were high on the line and there was a real sense of solidarity. When we stick together, We Win!
