Every December, we print the names of our members who have 51 and more years of service in Local 3, and every year, this list is impressively long!
But this year’s list is a little extra special, as we prepare to celebrate the union’s 75th anniversary next year.
It’s easy for us younger operators to take some of what we have now for granted. Things like an eight-hour workday, overtime pay and respectable wages were not always commonplace! (Did you know that in 1948 the average hourly rate in Hawaii was $1.89?)
We also highlight a few of our multi-generational Local 3 families this month who have made Local 3 not only a way of life but a family tradition! Check it all out here!
