Brothers and Sisters,

The Painters turned down the offer given by the employers on Tuesday July 25, 2023. After the employers were notified the offer was turned down the Sacramento Addendum was extended due to the Northern California Painters Master agreement taking an extended time to ratify. We are currently scheduled to meet with the employers again on Monday August 31, 2023. Please keep up on the text messages that are coming out. If you are not receiving the messages, please contact the Union Hall to ensure that your information is up to date. If you have not answered the response to the latest survey that came out in a text on July 27, 2023, we need to know what you want. Up until Friday July 28, 2023 I have only received 125 responses. WE NEED TO HEAR WHAT EVERYONE WANTS! We have about 370 Painters, that means that only about 1/3 of the Local 487 members have responded. This is the same with the voting. We only had 135 members vote on the last offer. The votes were: 40-Yes, 94-No and 1 blank ballot that was considered spoiled. Please let your voice be heard and respond to the survey and show up to vote!



Congratulations to all of the Local 487 members who took home prizes from the raffle at this year’s STAR Event. Special congratulations to Fermin Guzman who took home the Chevy Malibu. Don’t forget to keep your certifications up to date. You can find all upcoming classes at the DC 16 STAR website https://dc16star.org/course-category/active-courses/  PAINTERS- Don’t […]
