Brothers and Sisters - We have tragic news from Local 551 -
Jack Buckhorn's grandson Jayden, was in a horrific drowning accident this past Friday evening and as you can well imagine, Jack, his wife Kathy and their family are experiencing a very difficult time.
I spoke with Jack this morning and he said that the only thing that is going to help get the family through this difficult time is God, family and friends. Well brothers and sisters, I think we have two of the three covered. Let's show Jack that we are in his family and he is in ours !!  We are his friends and he is one of ours - Let's help him now that we are needed most !!
Please remember Jack and his family in your prayers and when you hug your loved ones a little tighter and a little longer this day -
If you want to reach out to Jack and offer your condolences, I think he would really appreciate that. You can either email him @ jackb@ibewlocal551org or call his cell and leave a message at 707 477 9140.

New Dispatch Rules - Effective November 1, 2012

 Dear Sisters and Brothers:

IBEW Local 551 and the Redwood Empire Chapter NECA adopted changes to our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) on June 1, 2011 that modified the referral procedure.  The new language allows for an applicant to maintain Group I status in our local union once the applicant qualifies.  This new provision of the CBA is not retroactive, therefore; all applicants for Group I must meet the three-part test, as defined in Article 4, Section 4.05, to qualify for Group I which states in part “…are residents of the geographical area constituting the normal construction labor market, have passed a Journeyman Wireman’s examination given by a duly constituted Inside Construction Local Union of the IBEW or have been certified as a Journeyman Wireman by any Inside Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, and who have been employed in the trade for a period of at least one year in the last four years in the geographical area covered by the collective bargaining agreement.”

Please be advised that new IBEW Local 551 Referral System-Dispatching Rules have been developed to incorporate the new referral Group I language in accordance with the guidelines established by the International President of the IBEW.  These Referral System-Dispatching Rules have been posted in the union hall for your review.  They will become effective on November 1, 2012.  We will also be reinstating the three-strike rule at the same time.

Please click on the following link to review the new referral system - Dispatching Rules.
