Motion for a Special Called Meeting
At Local 30’s July 11, 2016 membership meeting, a motion was made, seconded and carried to hold a Special Called Meeting to be held at Carpenters Local 30, 231 Burnett Avenue N., Renton, WA 98057at 10:00 am,Saturday, July 30, 2016. This meeting is in regards to the letter received by Recording Secretary Jeff Skillman on behalf of the membership of Carpenters Local 30, dated June 29, 2016 from Catherine Rothwell of McKenzie Rothwell Barlow & Coughran, P.S. The letter referenced projections for the Carpenters Trust of Western Washington defined pension plan being projected “to turn yellow in 2018 because the funded percentage falls below 80%” with “the Plan” being projected “to turn red in 2026 because of the credit balance.” Local 30 will send letters to Carpenter Locals 41, 70, 96, 129, 196 and 816 to invite their members to attend. Local 30 will also invite representatives of the Carpenters Trust of Western Washington including Randy Parker, Jim Wilhite, Labor Trustees Executive Secretary Doug Tweedy, Evelyn Shapiro-O’Connor, Rick Poitras, Jim Osborne, and Jerry Auvil to answer questions concerning this projection and the ongoing condition of the Carpenters Trust of Western Washington.
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. __________________________________________________________________________

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! __________________________________________________________________________
