Engineers News - February 2015

February 2015This month’s magazine features one of our popular pin spreads, where we highlight many of the members who have hit major milestones in their Local 3 careers and received a service pin for their years in the union. Service pins are given in five-year increments, from 25 to 75 years of service. If you’re eligible for one, please contact your district office. Click here to look through them now.

You can also read about the work being done on two California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC)/Sutter Health campuses in Burlingame – a $2 billion project – and how to stay warm while working in the winter weather. You don’t want to catch a chill and miss out on all that’s planned for the start of the season.
