What’s New???????

Posted September 8, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

Work has slowed down since most of the school projects are complete. The out-of-work list as of today (9/7/23) has 8 members on the list, 4 journeymen and 4 apprentices. If you are filing for unemployment you need to be on the out-of-work list, if the Employment Development Department (EDD) calls and you are not on the list they will deny your unemployment claim. Apprentices need to be on the list per your apprenticeship agreement and be available for a DAS-142 assignment if called.

I would like to ask all members and their families to consider participating in the Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 15, 2023, at Sac State. Local 1237, 767, and 487 have participated for years and we need more people to join us for a very worthwhile cause. Most of us know someone who has or had breast cancer and hopefully won the fight. This is a chance to walk on behalf of those who people and help raise awareness. All 3 locals donate to the cause and signing up is free. I have included the link for your convenience. I hope you and yours will join us.
