      Want to speak to a representative?

      Thank you to the City of Tracy!

       Mayor Rickman, Councilmembers Rhodesia Ransom, Veronica Vargas, Dan Arriola, and Nancy young for voting with Tracy residents and voting 5-0 at your September 3, 2019 meeting to authorize your staff to negotiate a City wide Project Labor Agreement with the San Joaquin Building Trades Council! It's long over due and will benefit the residents of Tracy who want to work on Local projects and spend more time with family rather than commuting over the Altamont.


       Tonight was a win for our local workforce and Delta College took a proactive approach in helping raise their standard of living. More of our local construction force will be able to work on local projects rather than commuting to the Bay Area. More opportunities will open up for district residents and students to join our Apprenticeship programs.

      The San Joaquin Building Trades Council would like to thank the San Joaquin Delta College Trustees and administration for supporting a Project Labor Agreement in a unanimous 7-0 vote at last night’s meeting.

      The men and women of the San Joaquin Building Trades would like to thank and congratulate the Stockton City Council for renewing their faith in their city and its construction workers by renewing the Community Workforce and Training Agreement for another 5 year term. Since 2016, projects completed under the CWTA in the city had 46% stockton residents on them and a whopping 85% were San Joaquin residents. Because of the CWTA, the City now has robust reporting requirements for local hiring on city projects.

      Thank you Mayor Tubbs, Vice Mayor Dan Wright, Council members Sol Jobrack, Christina Fugazi, and Paul Canepa for standing with working people!

      Our world is changing…and it can be a time of great opportunity for Americans to earn a better living, support their families, and have a rewarding career. But government must take the side of workers and their families. The idea that taxpayer dollars should be invested in a ‘race to the bottom’ business model based on the imprecise hopes of saving money is an idea fashioned for the world of yesterday – when seeking out cheap labor both at home and abroad was the popular thing to do. Today, we seek transformative ideas that can propel our society forward…not backward. Project Labor Agreements can help us do just that…by not only ensuring a proper budgetary return on taxpayer investments, but also by facilitating stronger communities and career training opportunities that will equip and prepare many local citizens to pursue their version of the American Dream. Thank you to all the Journey persons and apprentices that came out to tell your individual stories about how having local work opportunities would benefit your lives and the lives of your families. I'm always humbled at the collective power of people when they believe in something and band together to achieve a goal.

      Thank you to the Stockton Unified School District Board of Trustees for voting 7-0 last night in favor of negotiating a project labor agreement with our Building trades Council!
