Dear Brothers and Sisters;
I am very pleased to inform you that, effective today, Local Union 80 and Local Union 31 have joined together to ensure that Plasterers continue representing Plasterers. The geographic jurisdiction of Local Union 31 will now include the following counties in the state of Ohio: Ashtabula, Lake, Geauga, Cuyahoga and Lorain
This jurisdiction is covered by a collective bargaining agreement with the Cleveland Employers Association (CEA). Information regarding the current wage rates and Employer’s listing will be posted on the website over the coming days.
We are also welcoming our Brother and Sister Plasterers from Local Union 80 into the ranks of Local Union 31. Through meetings and training sessions John and I have both spent time with many of our new Local 31 Brothers and Sisters and we look forward to getting to know everyone.
I have appointed Gary Sefcik to serve as Business Agent. While Gary’s primary responsibilities will be in the Cleveland Area, Gary is a Local 31 Business Agent and should be viewed as such throughout our jurisdiction.
Gary can be reached at:
This change represents one more step toward our goal of providing first class training, top notch craftsmen and total portability of Plasterers throughout the Pennsylvania / Ohio Valley region.
More information will be forwarded to you in the coming days.
If you should have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
