We are the Members First Ticket. We believe we can
return Local 3 to greatness through leadership, transparency and
accountability. We will bring back Local 3ís traditions of strong
contract negotiations and strict work jurisdiction.
We need to restore our pension. It is our goal to have it funded one hundred percent (100%) and keep it that way. Our Health and Welfare benefits need to be brought back to the levels of the late nineties.
We must reclaim our jurisdiction and enforce our contracts. We need to secure new technology and be ready for the future and the changes it will bring forth. Members will have input in all negotiated agreements with a strong rank and file committee present at the bargaining table.
We will increase training at Rancho Murieta Training Center, and all of our Training centers across the four state jurisdiction for journeymen and apprentices. We will create training opportunities in each district so members will not have to travel to a Training Center and loose time at work to upgrade certain skills.
All funds will be audited and we will take a close look into the management of our investments.
We promise to bring all issues and concerns within the Union/Local 3 to the membership for understanding and vote if necessary. Including any found misconduct or misappropriations of Union funds.
Most importantly we put the Local 3 Membership
BY THE MEMBERS FOR THE MEMBERSHIP!
