      PREVAILING WAGE

      STUDY PERFECTLY ILLUSTRATES WHY ARGUMENTS AGAINST PREVAILING WAGE ARE ILLOGICAL AND ABSURB

      Read this interesting article by Robbie Hunter, President of the California State Building & Construction Trades Council on whether construction workers deserve to be paid prevailing wage on public projects.  There is an active crusade by Republicans in this country to slash wages on publicly funded projects , and if we don't elect people who will fight for the working class people in this country, we will be the losers !  Think about it !

      READ THE FULL ARTICLE

      KEEP UPDATED ON THE LATEST NEWS THAT AFFECTS ORGANIZED LABOR

      We are looking for members who  would like to share a few words about their experience and career change since becoming a member of Local 112.   Many times those working in the non-union sector of the electrical industry are hesitant to join because they have heard so many negative things about being a union electrician, mainly from their non-union employer.   If you have worked non-union in the past and are now a union, IBEW member, we would like to hear from you about the changes you have experienced in  your life since being a union member…….. changes on the job and the changes to your family with a wage and benefit package that allows you to feel confident you are doing the best in supporting and taking care of  them.   Call Joe Legard at the hall for more info. 509-735-0512.

      DON'T BE FOOLED BY RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS

      We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as "Right to Work".  It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.  Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining .  Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights.  We do not intend to let them do this to us.

      The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
