The Apprentice Did What?

Posted August 25, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

It’s been a busy summer and now that it’s starting to slow down a little, if you are not working, please make sure to put yourself on the Out-of-Work List. July was the start of the new STAR program, I have included the link below. Please remember that you must take SCT as the STAR qualifier (you only have to take it once) if you have taken it within the last 2 years then there is no need to take it again. You must have 2 STAR classes by June 30, 2024, to qualify for next year’s STAR Event.

With the new Master Flooring Agreement and the Sacramento Addendum being ratified we should have physical contracts out very soon. The wage schedules for the January 1, 2024, increase will be out soon. The travel mileage from 45 miles to 60 miles went into effect August 1, 2023, and so did the per diem increase to $75.00. If you are not getting the correct per diem, please let me know. 

During the coming months we will be discussing some of the new articles of the new contract, I hope you will make every effort to attend. Next weekend is Labor Day and with that comes a 4-day weekend. Friday September 1st is a Designated Day Off and Monday September 4th is a holiday. If you work any of the 4 days, the wage rate is at double time. Our own apprentice Cody Hartwick recently competed in the CFI Regional Qualifier and did well. Thanks, Cody, for representing Local 1237.
