Local 3 and the Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County mobilized hundreds of union workers and supporters as they marched through the streets of Oakland to a rally at Frank Ogawa Plaza on Wednesday, May 1 in observance of International Workers’ Day, commonly known as May Day. The march was organized in protest of the City of Oakland refusing to implement a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) and allowing contractors to bring in out-of-area workers on city projects. The march and rally were covered by local news outlets, including KPIX and KTVU.
In the May 2019 issue of the Engineers News, we have several special features, including the cover story on the Wright Solar project, which is creating jobs in the Central Valley and greener energy for San Mateo County. Our operators are such big news on this project, that Pen TV showed up to film them in action.
