A Tip of The Hat Brothers & Sisters,
While we are continuing to deal with the pandemic and the many changes we have encountered, work continues here in the High Desert. We have unfilled calls to Antelope Valley College and the Palmdale School District. We are working the Antelope Valley Transit Authority projects, Defense Plants (Boeing, Lockheed and Northrop), County Health Facility and Senior Housing among other jobs in area.
Our LAQSP class has been postponed to a later date. If you are interested, please call District 5 to get on the list.
I would like to give a shout-out to our organizer Alton Wilkerson for doing a great job staying on top of our non-union brothers and sisters working various projects trying to bring them into our Brotherhood. I would also like to give a shout-out to Kris Mendoza for doing a great job with Kinkisharyo and our manufacturing sector. I would like to thank Business Development for another win on another project hot off the press. This job will be a Battery Storage facility located in Lancaster to compliment the solar fields already in place. This project along with the new Green Hydrogen plant is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year. I would like to give a sincere thanks to our litany of members who so often help not only District 5 but Local 11. Also, to our District 5 officers Alfredo (The Killer) Torres, King (The Terminator) Moore, Adalberto (Gargoyle) Gonzales, Mike (Ice Pick) Kaminski, Luis (Mafioso) Martinez, Dion (Hitman) Jensen, George (Kingpin) Martinez, Shane (Pain) Fairbrother and Edgar (The Animal) Ico thank you all so much for keeping District 5 the Great District it Is Today. God Bless the IBEW.
