A message from the Election Committee Chair Joshua Douglass:
To Local 30 Election Committee,
I would like to thank the 3 committee members for their diligence and commitment to our membership. The three committee members are as follows: Ron Phillips, Andrew Gocus, and Tim White. Your dedication and willingness to play an integral role in our election process does not go without notice.
Thank you also to Local 30 office staff who assisted the committee; Chuck, Karla, Joni, and Valeri.
OWLS is an open-multiracial, multicultural group of rank-and-file labor activists, committed to education and action with the aim of building solidarity and fighting spirit in the labor movement. Help put a public spotlight on the union-busting Freedom Foundation. The billionaire-backed Foundation is trying to bankrupt the labor movement, slash pension, roll back minimum wage gains, cut public services, attack immigrant rights and much more!
Ever considered taking shifts in Trades Show? The work is generally indoors, shifts often occur on weekends or in the evening. Hours worked over 8, past 10:00PM, or Saturdays, Sundays & Holidays would be overtime - about your regular wage.
Contact the Kent Specialties Training Center to find out dates for their upcoming classes and to sign up.
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!
If you are out of work and need to register on the out of work list you will need to call the Mix 20/20 automated phone number at 1-866-649-5463. Be prepared to have your UBC ID# and 4 digit PIN# (first time users last 4 digits of SS#) available when you call. If you have any questions or problems when checking in contact the dispatch phone number at 253-945-8830 or 1-800-953-6444.
The Regional Council website has a very useful video explaining the new Mix 20/20 dispatch procedure.
* Members can now check their OWL status, assigned work areas, skills, and contact info online at https://www.mix2020.com/member/pn/. You will need to provide the same info to log in as you do on the phone system - 8 digit UBC ID #, and pin code. More info can be found in the Council's website.
