Want to Secure More Work?

Posted January 24, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

I hope you are all doing well. With the recent storms a lot of areas have been affected in different ways. There are several large projects coming up, so make sure you are getting on the out-of-work list and that you are staying in contact with employers. There will be a large demand for Painters and Drywall Finishers.

With that being said, I want to remind everyone about the STAR training. Take advantage of the training while classes are still available as classes get full quick. Right now is especially a good time to take these classes for those who are not working. It’s better to have a certification, than to not be able to go to work for not having one. You can go to the DC16 STAR website at https://www.dc16star.org/  for more information on classes and the schedule. Most classes are accepting walk-ins. You can contact the STAR Program to find out if they are accepting walk-ins for the class you want to attend. Don’t forget you must complete the SCT Class at least once to qualify for the STAR Awards picnic.

In Solidarity,

William Gonzalez
