What’s Happening Lately

Posted April 26, 2021

Brothers and Sisters,

I would like to thank all of the members who have been calling in and providing us with information and locations of projects we may not be aware of. I would like to explain the geographical area that is covered by Local 767. We cover as far North as the Oregon Border, Atwater to the South,  portions of Solano County to the West (Vacaville city limits, Rio Vista and Dixon) and the Tahoe Basin to the East. Recently, we are starting to target more projects in the North Valley (Chico, Paradise, Redding and Alturas) and are starting to do bid walks in remote Northern Areas. Due to COVID restrictions we stopped visiting projects in Eureka and Crescent City but now we will be re-engaging  work in in these areas. Eureka and Crescent City are a 6-hour drive from Sacramento. In the Valley there is a large number of new hotels that are popping up and they tend to not follow OSHA guidelines. Recently on a tip we discovered that a non-union glass shop was working after hours on a JLG and 4 glaziers were not wearing harnesses. OSHA was called and I was told by the General Contractor that the Glazing Contractor was removed and could face fines up to $20,000 per infraction. By us monitoring these projects we are helping enforce OSHA guidelines as well as costing the non-union contractors money. Safety matters!!  The most important thing is that everyone goes home safe at night!
