USW Local 7600 Updates

Membership Appreciation Jacket Update: We're thrilled to announce that on Saturday,  March 9, 2024, between the hours of 9 am and 2 pm, Union staff will be at the Fontana Union Hall to distribute jackets to those who did not receive one.  

Members must be present to pick up their jackets. Employee number, ID, Badge, and hire date are required for verification. All new requests for jackets will be validated to prevent duplication of orders. One jacket per member, no exchanges. Limited quantities and sizes will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. If unable to attend this weekend, we are in the process of arranging future events but please be advised that quantities and sizes are limited.

(Must be past probation with KP to receive a jacket)
