Hello my Brothers and Sisters,
The work picture in D2 has been slow for some time now, but there are some large projects coming up.
Rosendin-Meadows JV, Pacific Industrial Electric and GECTWO will all be working on the Harbor UCLA 5 year project. The existing campus is going to be removed (the main hospital is staying) and all new buildings, new sub-station and infastructure will be going in. Job calls probably won’t start until later this year.
Taft Electric has the Compton High School project coming out of the ground soon.
There are two new 8-story buildings to be built in downtown Long Beach, where the old courthouse/civic center was.
There are six tilt-up bldgs coming in Carson across the freeway from IKEA where the outdoor mall was going to be built for a total of 1.5 million square feet. Gregg Electric will be doing this. Gregg will also being doing two new buildings by the Long Beach Airport.
The Belmont Shores Pool in Long Beach covered under a PLA needs to be built before the 2028 Olympics.
AES Power Plant in Long Beach is scheduled to add another 75 MW of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). BEI is also getting ready to start a new battery storage facility at the Hinson Substation in Long Beach. This project has just broken ground and is estimated for six to nine months.
Right down the street from our South Bay Hall, they are demolishing the existing Toyota plant buildings and replacing them with new tilt-ups. Gregg Electric should be doing this one.
There are multiple projects in the Port of Long Beach and L.A. ongoing, with some new ones to start in the near future.
The City of Carson is going to be installing 100+ EV charging stations after SCE gets the infastructure in place. Baker Electric is slated to be installing the EV chargers.
If you see any construction site in you travels that you want me to look in on, or if you want me to stop by your site, please give me a call, text or email. The only way we know where the current jobs sites are at is if we see job calls come into the halls, we happen to drive by a site, or if you, the members, give us a call.
Keep Saturday, August 6 marked on your calendars. This is the date for the Annual IBEW Local 11 Picnic which will be at the Hollywood Sports Park again this year.
Our new contract was ratified on Saturday, July 16. Effective Monday, July 25, the new Inside Journeyman rate will be $57.20. The membership voted in the new contract with a $4.35 raise with a one year contract.
As always, yours in brotherhood,
