Hi,
I just moved back to Austin, Texas from Las Vegas via Minneapolis. I am a journeyman painter. My card is good and I have my up to date certifications. What are my options for getting into a union shop here? Thank you
Even though I have been forced to retire, I still try to show my Union pride. I really miss all of my Brothers and Sisters. Y'all stay safe and healthy.
Thanks, we are good and I am still working at my University job as a Professor. hope to see you Thursday.

Dear ALL members of Local 756, we ALL need to stand together on this contract. Some of you may have heard, but notices have been sent out to vote on our upcoming contract this Saturday. I don't know about many of you, but I am confused as to how this meeting can be scheduled when negotiations have NOT taken place yet. What happens should the two sides of the table not reach an agreement? In addition, why is the District Council scheduling a meeting on a Saturday instead of our regularly scheduled meeting. Our monthly local meeting takes place on Tuesday, so why the need to vote 3 days before hand? My guess is that the District Council is trying to have as few members attend as possible. If this is the case, I have an issue with this. Our local pays into the District Council and included is supposed to be proper representation. I personally feel the business managers should be scheduling important meetings such as this one when ALL members can actually attend. I suggest we all stand up and make an attempt to contact Mr. Eric Porter and Mr. James Castleberry to find out some of these answers before the wool is pulled over our eyes. We need ALL of our memebers to set aside differences and stand as one on this issue to make sure we don't loose more then we have in the past.

Eric Cardenas, Jay You Ice, Patrick Phillips, Byron K. Studdard, Pam Kaylor, Blac Seed, Roderic Hines, Delando Daniels, Lee Edward Cotter, Robert Salinas, Michael Mesa, and ALL my other brothers in sisters... please re post and share.
I'd like to say thank you to IUPAT District Council 88 Local 1778 for your help with the check I received today to help with nececcatites after Hurricane Harvey destroyed our home.
It is deeply appreciated my family thanks you very much. I'm proud to be part of the IUPAT and gives me Great happiness that we all stand as one in time in need.
THANK YOU ALL.

Happy #Juneteenth
Juneteenth derives its name from June 19, 1865—the day that U.S. General Granger informed the enslaved peoples of Galveston, Texas, that they were officially free. Issued two-and-a-half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Granger’s decree marked the end of slavery in the rebellious Confederate states.
And while African Americans today are still fighting for equality and justice, Haith the creator of the Juneteenth flag, said the colors of the flag symbolize the continuous commitment of people in the United States to do better -- and to live up to the American ideal of liberty and justice for all.
