Greetings from the Westside,
Well, the election is over, so it’s time to get back to where we left off. Work around the county has been holding strong, and we still have our fair share in District 3. Fisk has been putting in a few calls for the Purple Line 2 station at Wilshire and Rodeo. It is a station box pit right now and they are getting it ready to receive the TBM.
Also, although the Clippers Arena is technically in District 1 and will be covered by Shomari Davis, it is close enough to District 3 to keep you updated. They have begun awarding bids with Touchstone getting the temp power which should be starting soon. I visited with Comet this week at their LAX shop. They currently have about 20 members working on the enabling for the APM and are looking to hire a few more members as the COVID restrictions ease. Any job call at the Airport has the potential to be a long-term job call.
Jobs I plan on visiting before our next report will be the project at LACMA where SASCO is currently working, all three Purple Line sections and various midsize projects I have been tracking.
On another note, we will be going back to in person unit meeting starting in July. District 3’s first meeting back will be held on July 1 at our new South Bay Hall at 2150 West 190th in Torrance. Then we will be heading back to Westchester starting in August.
Lastly, we agents can’t be everywhere all the time and we rely on you members to reach out to us if you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right. We need your help protecting our work.
As always, it is an honor and a pleasure serving you.
Business Agent, District 3
