Recent government orders from both the state and federal level has put mandates and rules in place requiring mandatory vaccinations either companywide or site specific.

We strongly encourage our members to get vaccinated; however this Local will continue to fight for our members rights including those to be exempt from the mandate based on sincerely held beliefs and medical conditions.

The WA Cares Fund is a new tax our members employed in Washington State will see deducted from their paychecks beginning January 1st, 2022. An overview of the WA Cares Fund can be found on their website at: http://www.wacaresfund.wa.gov/ . Please note that as a new law just starting to be implemented there may be changes over the next couple years as the implementation evolves.

This is a calculated tax and we estimate that most of our members will see an additional $9-$11 taken out of their weekly paychecks.

The Management Committe of this Local is endorsing Mr. Iyall for Olympia Port Commissioner and urges all members for their support and vote. Bob Iyall is a (42) year member of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 and supports living wage job opportunities. Mr. Iyall is a Nisqually Tribal Elder and the Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Creek Enterprise Corporation where, in cooperation with the Board of Directors, he oversees the day-to-day management of all enterprises owned by the Nisqually Indian Tribe including the Nisqually Red Wind Casino.
