Union Meetings to Restart this Summer: STAY TUNED!
Union meetings are still on pause due to Covid. We are waiting for Santa Clara County to lift its restrictions on group gatherings so we can restart safely. We hope this will either be for our July 6th or August 3rd meeting, as our members and officer like to gather and miss our camaraderie. Check your email, our website, and social media for ongoing union updates:

From Javier Casillas, 332 President & Member Development Representative
With things returning to normalcy, we are jumpstarting communication with the field. I’m getting out to the job sites more to improve working conditions. The contractors can’t be successful without us, and they need to do a better job taking care of our members. That starts with watching out for our members’ safety and well-being. Hazards should be treated as a priority and not an inconvenience.
Taking care of the members is also about putting in the effort. A clean and quiet designated break area with tables and chairs gives workers the rest they earn and deserve. Small things like that improve morale, which results in higher craftsmanship.
Additionally, we all have to be more engaged with the industry. We have to be vigilant about non-union competition taking union jobs under the radar. I encourage members to look around in Santa Clara County. Let us know where the non-union guys are. Call us. Email us. Text us. We want to increase our presence in that area to increase our market share. When we do so, we protect union jobs and protect our income for future contract negotiations. The higher the union density, the stronger we are. Always union!
