the rank & file roofers of l.a. local 36 have swept our executive board elections last weekend. we took all 9 exec board seats against a ticket endorsed by the corrupt international leadership.
for the last 2 years the international had imposed trusteeship over our local, dissolving our elected board, seizing our accounts & office, & taking over our day to day operations.
a formal complaint to the US dept of labor forced a new election and against all odds & expectation, we won every seat, myself elected to recording secretary, one of 4 officer positions on the exec board.
we represent 800 roofers at the largest shops in the greater l.a. area, with contracts from malibu to anaheim. 95% of our members are spanish speaking, many undocumented.
we still expect dirty tricks from the international before (& after) the swearing in ceremony, attempting to prevent the transfer of power so-
we invite all labor supporters, media, &c, to attend, observe & support the swearing in 7pm wednesday, january 2,
at the cement masons hall, 5811 e. florence avenue, bell gardens, east off the 710. (enter off ajax ave, just north of florence).
we also are in immediate need of:
a labor atty for permanent retainer,
an office secretary, fluent bilingual,
several union organizers, fluent bilingual.
must be able to deal with blue collar conditions & loyal.
