Work Outlook

Posted August 25, 2023

Local 1621 Members,

Work for the upcoming 4th quarter after talking to some of our larger contractors is going to be slow. Some of the jobs that were going to take off in October, November and December are now being pushed to 2024. That means that some shops will want to loan out Journeyman to other shops. Which would require a dispatch. So, Journeyman please plan ahead and make sure you have all of your required training to be dispatched out to the shop on loan.

District Council 16 has hired a new admin to work in the San Jose office for Local 1621. Her name is Stacy Sutherland. So, feel free to call the office for any needs you may have and introduce yourself to her.

I have been personally calling and reaching out to all the Production workers in our 1621 Membership. I have been asking your wants and needs for your upcoming CBA negotiations.  We currently have about 33 Production workers in local 1621. Thank you to all who have picked up your phone and spent the time to talk to me one on one. If you have anything you would like to add or just want to reach out to tell me what is going on in your shop, feel free to contact me at 408-824-1280.

As a reminder the Walter Cantrell Scholarships Deadline is August 31st, 2023. See link below for information.
