District 5 — October Report
Good Day Brothers & Sisters,
As Fall approaches, I hope everyone and your families are safe and well. We are all aware of how difficult it is dealing with this pandemic. Always feel free to call me with any concerns.
The work picture in District 5 is holding steadfast. We are continuing work at the Defense Plants with several of our contractors working various areas. We are also keeping busy at the Palmdale School District, Antelope Valley College, Antelope Valley Transit Authority, Senior Housing and the County Health facility to name a few. We have the solar project Rosendin Electric is starting and at the end of the year we hope to be working the Battery Storage facility and the new Green Hydrogen Plant.
I would like to congratulate our two new stewards. Summer Trout at Northrop and Adalberto Gonzales at Lockheed. Thank you and a shout out to our Sister Sherry Greenfield who was blessed with a beautiful baby girl.
Do not forget to sign up for our Journeyman classes that are being offered on-line. You will need 32 hours of ongoing education classes to renew your State certification and any classes taken through the ETI are approved by the State for licensing. Politics are heating up here in the high desert. We are heavily involved with our upcoming Presidential, 25th Congressional, 21st Senate, 36th Assembly plus local City Council and School Boards. Any help is always welcome and appreciated.
Thank you to our Organizer Alton Wilkerson and Manufacturing Business Representative Kristian Mendoza along with our officers Alfredo Torres, King Moore, Mike Kaminski, Luis Martinez, Edgar Ico, Dion Jensen, Shane Fairbrother, Adalberto Gonzales, George Martinez and Ron Dreiling. Please keep our fallen Brothers and Sisters in your prayers and always work safe.
God Bless our IBEW Family and stay safe,
