Master Agreements and Addendums
Let me start by apologizing for the delay in keeping up with this Posting. We all have been very busy with Negotiating the Master Agreements and Addendums for the DC 16 Painters and Floor Coverers. The Fresno Area Painter Addendum was just ratified on August 28th, 2023. I want to personally thank every Local 294 Painter that showed up and voted on the Addendum. We had just over 50% turnout of eligible voters which is the highest turnout on any Fresno Area Painter Addendum Ratification in my tenure. Whether you voted No or Yes on the Addendum your VOICE was heard and will set precedence for future Addendum Negotiations. That being said congratulations to all of our Painters and Floor Coverers on ratifying your Master Agreements and Addendums. Work Hard and Work Safe and always remember your training, quality and production is the strongest point in the negotiating process!
Congratulations to the 33 Local Union 294 members that qualified for this year’s STAR event on September 9th, 2023. Your dedication to training keeps you in the front of the Finishing Trades and ever reminds our Employers the General Contractors and End Users you perform for of your Dedication to High Performance High Value!
Annual Labor Day Event
For whatever reason you may not have qualified for the STAR event, all is not lost. On September 9th, 2023 We will be participating in the Annual Central Labor Council Labor Day Picnic and Fresno State Football Home Opener. This event will also afford you an opportunity to Volunteer under a VAC event by helping with either set up, Food Serving or simply keeping up with clean up throughout the afternoon.
