Local Lodge 6

Oakland, California

New lodge officers attend training

St. John’s, Newfoundland, Sept. 9-11

Program held in five cities in United States and Canada

2008 WAS AN election year — not only for the governments of Canada and the United States, but also for Boilermaker local lodges in both countries. While U.S. lodges must hold elections every three years, Canadian lodges do so every five years. Occasionally, the Boilermaker local lodge election cycles coincide, as they did in 2008.

Cushing family grateful for memories

WE WOULD LIKE to thank everyone for their condolences, flowers, and cards. It is of the utmost importance to his family that Ray [past New Jersey Local 28 BM-ST] be remembered for the man he was and the dedication he gave to his union and his family.

Our experiences with the Boilermakers have marked our lives indelibly. We will treasure these memories always.

Local 6 members keep shipbuilder “afloat”

Local 6 members are building a barge for Sasso Sabbia LLC in Petaluma, Calif.

Sasso Sabbia LLC signs agreement with Local 6

SASSO SABBIA LLC, a barge-building operation in Petaluma, Calif., has signed an agreement with Local 6 (Oakland, Calif.). According to Local 6 Bus. Rep Dave King, Sasso signed the union agreement after their nonunion venture ended with the sinking of their first barge on its maiden voyage — with only half a load on board.

With a completion date of March 2009 nearing, the company already has two more barges on order and it looks like smooth sailing for this new union contractor.
