Hello sisters and brothers from the Westside. Even though there hasn’t been much in the way of job calls here in District 3, the calls Local-wide are starting to pick up slowly. I was on a conference call earlier this week, and the L.A. / Orange County Building Trades were able to come to terms with LAWA and sign a 10 year extension to the PLA. That alone is great news because LAX and Van Nuys Airports still have quite a few big projects in the pipeline. I will share those details as they become available.
I also have a huge favor to ask of all of our members. If you see or hear something on the jobsite that doesn’t sound right, please reach out to the business agent for that area. And please do it in a timely manner. Don’t wait two or three weeks. A lot of issues can be time-sensitive. YOU are the eyes and ears out there for the IBEW. Please help us protect our work. All calls or texts are obviously confidential. We work for you, our members. Let us do the dirty work.
In conclusion, COVID-19 is spiking again, so please keep yourself and your family safe, and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
IBEW Local 11
