    COVID-19 (Hall Closed to Foot Traffic)

    March 23, 2020 Brothers and sisters, During these uncertain times, I wanted to reach out with an update about what we are doing to address the economic and financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our members and signatory contractors. We are continuing to evaluate our operations with safety and service to our membership at the forefront of our considerations.

    Welcome to the new site!

    We have worked hard to roll out a new website with many more features! This site is union made and hosted, and will work much better on phones and tablets with its responsive design. We are excited that we can now provide more information and updates to our members with the photo albums and calendar. Keep an eye out for updates, and let us know what you think.


    Did you recently change your phone number or address? Looking to get on the out of work list or into training? Do you have any new certifications or skills? Make sure that you stay in touch with dispatch and let them know so that they have the most up-to-date information!

    We have invested millions of dollars in our state-of-the-art training center in Canby, OR to ensure that are members are the most skilled professionals in our craft. If you are looking to upgrade your skills make sure to check the training center website for a class schedule.
