Tools for Apprentices
If you are retired or no longer need your tools, consider donating tools (in good working order) to our carpenter union apprentices. Tool donations make a big difference to apprentices who are just starting out in our trade. Tool donations to the Seatac Carpenters Training Center will be raffled off on an ongoing basis in a "no-cost raffle" to apprentices who need them . Thank you for your generosity.
Call Seatac Apprenticeship Coordinator Cindy Gaudio at 425-503-1546 to arrange for tool drop off. __________________________________________________________________________

The following is the result of our bylaw vote held on December 8th. There were 93 members present that casted their ballot with 41 to Accept and 52 to REJECT the section of the bylaw that would allow the Local to increase monthly dues to $25.00. Therefore, dues will remain at $20.00 per month for members working and on dues checkoff. Other options may have to be looked at to insure the Local can sustain financially. __________________________________________________________________________

Register on the out of work list if you are filing for unemployment
Some members have received a notice from Employment Security that there is an issue with their standing in the Local. In most cases it is NOT because you are not in good standing..it is because you did not get registered on the out of work list. We cannot express strongly enough that if you are drawing unemployment benefits you must call mix 20/20 to register on the out of work list. This would be for everyone, even if your employer is bringing you back! __________________________________________________________________________
