There will be a special called union meeting at 6am, Tuesday morning June 27, 2017 in Hall 1. The members present will vote on any and all contract proposals by the employers.
At the July 12th, 2017 union meeting we will be holding nominations for officers and delegates of the Seattle Roofers And Waterproofers Union, Local 54. The meeting was moved from its normal July 5th date due to the Fourth of July Holiday. You must be present at the July 12th meeting to nominate a candidate. The candidate does not have to be present however. The election will be held by mail in ballot in August 2017.
The current contract expires Wednesday May 31st, 2017. As of June 1st, your union employers and you as union employees are required by law to continue under all the terms and conditions of the contract that just expired. Your wages, benefits and working rules stay the same until a new agreement is reached. The union is continuing to negotiate with your employers. Please be at the next regular union meeting Wednesday June 7th, at 7:00pm for information on negotiations.
Local 54 is sad to announce the passing of Mr. Rick Obar. A good roofer, good member and good guy. For information on services for Rick, click on attachment.
Please be aware that the U.S. Postal Service has been continuing to take longer to deliver mail to Local 54 here at the Labor Temple. The result of this has been that members have gone suspended due to not allowing enough days for the mail to arrive. The minimum time you should allow is (5) five working days to be safe. Even this may not be enough days, depending where you live. The last business day of the month is the official day of the closing of the Union’s financial books. This month that day is June 30th, 2015, which falls on a Tuesday. The following day is the regular union meeting night. July 1st,
