Work has picked up a lot in the past few weeks. We have cleared out the painters out-of-work list and have many employers still in need of more Painters. If you have not called to get on the list, please contact the office ASAP. Remember, we start a new out-of-work list at the beginning of every month. Drywall finishers are also slowly going back to work. Most of the companies are asking for Journeyman who have graduated from the apprenticeship program. The work outlook for the summer is looking good so get in contact with the shops. 

The week of 4th of July is a short week. Thursday July 4th is a holiday and should be paid at Double Time if worked. That is for both Painters and Drywall Finishers. Friday July 5th is a Designated Day of and should be paid at Time and a Half if worked. This is for both Painters and Drywall Finishers. These are the only holidays and DDO’s in the month of July. I hope you all have a good, safe holiday weekend.

 In Solidarity
