Wanted: Manpower

Posted January 17, 2023

If you or someone you know is currently out of work, ProSpectra is looking for manpower to work on the Redding Court House.  The wages are the same as Sacramento, per diem is $45.00 a day, round trip travel, and lodging.  If you are interested, please contact Field Superintendent Butch Phillips at (408)722-7736.

With that is being said, this is a contract year and the negotiating team needs to know what you want in a new contract. You will be receiving text messages, emails, and jobsite visits. We will be asking member to fill out contract surveys and give any input they have. If you think we don’t care, you couldn’t be more wrong!

If you read the last article, the new DC16 Organizer Edward Valencia started working on January 3rd.  I would like to take this time to welcome brother Edward to the team.  Prior to being hired, brother Edward attended and completed the DC16 Bootcamp.  Brother Edward has been a long-time member of Local 1237 and is currently a Trustee to the Executive Board. If you see him out in the field please take a minute to say hello.  

I look forward to seeing you at our next Membership Meeting on February 7, 2023, at 5:30 pm.

Happy New Year and welcome to 2023!
