To Dear Old Dad

Posted June 16, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this article finds you and your family enjoying the early days of summer. I have been getting calls from members asking if there is a proposed Master Agreement and when will negotiations start for the Sacramento Addendum? As soon as we have a proposed Mater Agreement you will be notified by text, email, and by your shop of the date and times that we will need to vote. We need to make sure that every member of Local 1237 gets out and votes! It will be an all-day vote and if you are working out of the Sacramento area, we can find you another union hall to vote at. If the Master Agreement is ratified by the members, then the Sacramento Addendum will start negotiations. I would like to thank those of you who took the time to fill out a contract negotiations questionnaire. The data we received will be used in both the Master Agreement and Sacramento Addendum negotiations. 

Father’s Day being this Sunday I would like to take this time to wish all of you a Happy Father’s Day! It’s not easy raising kids and it’s even harder when you are working out of town, nights, and weekends. I hope you spend some quality time this 3-day weekend with your significant other and your kids. Local 1237 has several members who are father and son. Having 2 sons (Colby & Hunter) in local 1237 myself has been blessing as I get to see them go through what I had to as an apprentice and eventually journey out. Here is a list of current father, son members;

Francisco Barba Sr & Francisco Barba Jr

Gus & Ethan Cooksey

Shane & Levi Haberman

Greg & Cody Hartwick

Gary & Wes Mitchell

Pietro Pineda Sr & Pietro Pineda Jr

Tony & Aaron Ringor

Randy & Colby, Hunter Rojas

Todd & Ronnie Rose

Royd & Austin Snyder

If I left anyone out, I apologize and please let me know. I would also like to congratulate John Harris and Vince Echeverria who won River Cats tickets at this month’s membership meeting.
