The agreement is a one year roll over of the current contract with no changes, except wages. The contract is effective July 1, 2022, and is worth $4.00 to the members. They will get $1.50 on July 1, 2022, with $1.00 going to wages and .50¢ going to their annuity. On January 1, 2023 they will get another $2.50 and with $1.00 going to wages, $1.00 going to their Holiday/Vacation, .15¢ going to Market Recovery and .35¢ for health and welfare. Now that the master agreement is finished, the Sacramento Addendum can be negotiated.

They also voted for Joe Culley to continue to lead the members of 1512 (flooring in Las Vegas) as their Business Rep. I would like to thank those of you who took the time to come out and vote, I know we are all very busy but you came out when it really mattered.
At the July meeting we will have nominations for the following positions; Member at large (1), VAC Coordinator (1), DC16 Delegates (2). Elections will be in August if needed. I would like to take this time to ask you (the member) what works best for you when it comes to getting information from the local? Is it email, text or mail? We try to make sure that you keep informed on what is going on with the local, your dues status and important events.
We also have a few new members that joined this month; Oliver Diaz (HW Thompson), Jorge Hernandez (Field Turf USA), Cody Monedero (BT Mancini) and Austin Snyder (Anderson Flooring) all four are apprentices.
