It was reported that Organizing Director Ray Kitson along with Local #3 Business Representatives and organizers have signed up 13 electrical contractors so far through August 2019. Many of these contractors have hired journeymen electricians from the Employment Department and most have been doing work that we have had trouble securing. Thank you to all who have helped with these efforts.

Local 3 dues for the period of October 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020 is $268.00 for all "A" Construction Divisions including: AJ, Apprentices, A Telephone, G Superintendents, MIJ, MJ, M Helpers, RW & RE. All payments should be mailed in early September in order to ensure the newly issued working card is received by the members prior to October 1, 2019. No cash is accepted. Dues must be paid by check or money order. Include your CARD NUMBER on your CHECK OR MONEY ORDER to ensure prompt processing. Check out the Local 3 website for more information.

There are a number of offshore wind open house informational events hosted by NYSERDA coming up in the boroughs and we need our members to participate to ensure these offshore wind projects will lead to work opportunities for Local 3 members. If you live or work in or near these neighborhoods please make every effort to attend.
