The IBEW has been pushing for that for years. The ABC has been fighting licensing of any kind for years. Why do you think Pennsylvania STILL doesn't have a state wide license?

Because it would put 1/2 of their electrical work force out of a job until they could comply.....

Unhappy Laid off

Just got laid off from Intel, out of LU640 in Phx. This is bull****!! cuz we were working 60hrs a week, and still lots of work out there. Rosendin laid off alot of us, why??? 640 is all politics and weak, but this is my home union. Would like to do a little traveling, but need some info on where the jobs are moving into Book 2.

Well put. Ask a (good) Teacher.

It is 'For the children' after all. Ya right!!!!!!!!!

There is no money left in the municipalities, The .... are taking and mis-spending it all.

The 'dreaded private' sector refuse to pay the rates.

Sorry- IMO- Priced selfs right out of work.

But Thank you for all the safety regs etc that have been implemented.

Now they are LAW- so... never mind...

Local 639 has had calls left over for their solar farms, all around the bay area in California work has broke and book 2 (license needed on most jobs) 477 has been in need of certified welder/JW's and I hear 440 will need some help from book 2 in the near future. Go to your hall (I hear its on 7th st) speak with a BA get a "Tramp Guide" and get your rep to make a few calls to other locals to check before you jet out on the road.I also hear Brothers and Sisters have been finding employment in Texas and Wyoming working off permits. Now the way you worded "your home union" I will assume you are a new member, so please try and be patient with matters you apparently have little experience with and lets all be thankful we are top side dirt? When you go by your "home union" check on their bandanna's the chili pepper one's are way cool.

This is the worst it has been for anyone in the trade, but things are slowly picking up. I don't know how attached you are to IL, but local 46 in Seattle has an awesome program for veterans. PM me if you want any more info.
