Your Contract

Posted July 28, 2023

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

I hope everyone is having a great summer. The work in Sacramento has really started to pick up and we are starting to see a lot of new members joining. If you have a family member who is interested in being an apprentice Glazier or a Production Worker please contact me. If you are a Production Worker, Production Glazier, or Allied Worker it is important to be at the next Union Meeting so we can talk about what you would like to see in your next contract. The Glaziers Northern California Glaziers Master agreement and the Sacramento Addendum will be expiring June 31st 2024. I would like to remind all members if there is a strike you must fulfill all of your obligations that are in the IUPAT Constitution, DC16 Bylaws and the Local Union Bylaws to avoid having charges filed against you. Do not plan a vacation that could conflict with your ability to go on strike. The next Union Meeting is August 8th at 5:00 P.M. I hope to see you there!

Regional Director
