District 4 Report — May 2022
I hope everyone is staying healthy. The work has temporarily slowed, but it will definitely pick up soon. As I have reported in the past, LAUSD and LACCD work in our district will keep many of our members employed in the near future.
Hot off the press! Metro has been given the green light to begin construction of the East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Project. This will connect North Hollywood to the Sylmar Station. The 6.7-mile rail line will bisect Van Nuys Boulevard. There will be 14 stations on the $3 billion project. The project will also include nine traction power stations, and a maintenance yard in Van Nuys.
In addition, a 34-acre site was recently purchased in Woodland Hills. The Rams have been rumored to be in the market for a new practice facility and this would be a prime location. I will keep track of all updates involving this property.
I would like to thank the District 4 Welfare Committee for all its hard work and dedication to helping District 4 Members in need.
Be safe on the job and look out for your Brothers and Sisters.
IBEW Local 11, District 4
