At the July meeting, we were happy to report that unemployment has significantly dropped from the 125 member high that we had just a few months ago. This is due to the fact that Local 3 members have agreed to rotate in one unemployed Local 3 North member for every ten jobs in NYC, sharing the work opportunity with Local 3 members in Westchester. Lower unemployment numbers were also helped by some big projects taking place north of the city. Our members have started work at Regeneron in Tarrytown, public school jobs in Yonkers and Mount Vernon and we have started work on a 70,000 s fuel cell job. We are also happy to announce that we have 25 new apprentices from Westchester joining the Local.
