Nevada AB 227 Passed in the Senate
AB 227, which keeps temp agencies out of construction, would dramatically reduce construction misclassification fraud and worker abuse in Nevada. Our members sprang into action and got over 1,500 postcards signed and mailed to Senator Pat Spearman in a matter of 4 days. When Carpenters stand up, politicians listen. Last week, AB 227 passed 12-9 in the Senate. Misclassification has likely cost Nevada taxpayers nearly $50 million dollars annually.
Carpenters Frame Home for JAH4WW
Carpenters filled their CUPP this weekend as they helped frame a home for a very deserving veteran. The framing work, that took place on Saturday, is only the beginning. The Southwest Carpenters are looking forward to continuing to work with the Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors and getting the family moved into a home built for them. If you are interested in giving back to our veterans and participating in opportunities like these, please visit www.swcarpenters.org/participate-in-cupp/.
