Sound & Communications Report – January 2023
Our work picture is looking up. The calls are coming in for members with different scopes of work. Certifications are still a must-have. Fire alarm, audio, video, fiber splicing and CCTV experience are typically in demand with our contractors. I cannot emphasize enough how vital it is that we obtain and keep up the FLS and VDV certifications to allow us to take those calls.
Traveling may also be an option while you are waiting on the book. Kern County Local 428 needs skilled and trained journeyman workers. Members must have completed an electrical apprenticeship program. Advanced Cabling Solutions also has work in China Lake.
Housing is provided along with a $65 stipend and gas to and from the jobsite. The pay rate will be higher on that site.
In closing, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted YES! for another Project Labor Agreement. A win for IBEW!
