In the meantime, we will be using the new location for a few committee meetings and if you are on those committees you will receive a notice. For now, it is business as usual at El Centro Road. JUST A REMINDER: The JATC is not moving with us this summer. Our training center will remain, at this time, on El Centro Road.

STATE FAIR BOOTH – CAL EXPO
Don’t forget! Saturday July 14th is Local 340’s day to man the Union Booth at the California State Fair. Be sure to stop by for some “freebies” and introduce yourself to the Brothers and Sisters who will be volunteering their time to get out our message that IBEW 360 is about Union jobs and benefits.
This years’ winners (Michelle Campbell, Jasmine Prasad, and Esperanza Damian) will be presented with their scholarships at the Membership Meeting scheduled for July 11th. Congratulations again to the scholarship winners! It is due to the dedication of their parents and grandparents living the Union way that inspired these winners to write their essays about the importance of Unions. Come to the meeting and hear them read these essays. Also, there will be cake!
