Congratulations to all the workers at Virginia Transformer in Pocatello, Idaho who voted Union Yes! in a National Labor Relations Board election held on September 29, 2022.

The year-long campaign in the 182-person bargaining unit concluded with the employees choosing convincingly to be represented by Local 302. Welcome aboard!

We here at Local 302 were deeply saddened to hear of the untimely loss of Brother Eric Snell. Eric was a Local 302 member for 31 years. Many knew of him through his years owning and operating Snell Crane Service, located in Olympia, WA. An obituary was published in the Olympian Newspaper which can be read in full here. We send our condolences to his wife Carrie, children, grandchildren, and all family members.

A memorial service will be held on October 8, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. at the Sam Benn gymnasium at Aberdeen High School. A reception will follow at the D & R Event Center downtown. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to the Central Park Fire Department, 6317 Olympia Hwy, Aberdeen Washington, 98520.

If you live in the greater Seattle area you can’t help but be aware of the well-traveled SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Project.

Built in stages, the improvements extend from I-405 in Bellevue to I-5 in Seattle to enhance travel safety and mobility with modern, structurally stronger bridges, as well as roadway improvements.

Our Operating Engineers have been there from the ground-up working hard towards completion of this important urban project.



Our Stationary Operators bring the best to Valley Medical Center from monitoring and maintaining facility systems to identifying ways to improve experiences for patients and their families.

They do so much of the behind the scenes work from boilers, to vaccine refrigerators, to fixing stretchers and hospital beds, to advanced electrical/healthcare equipment, to electrical, to carpentry, generators, chillers and more.



Work zone injuries and fatalities are at their highest they have been in years.

Workers deserve to come home from work after their shift and not be afraid to take a highway or road job because of the high number of work zone incidents that are occurring.

Members, join us in choosing to #DRIVESAFERWA! This fall, we’re joining the USI (Unions, Senators, Industry Leaders) Committee to raise awareness about work zone safety and do our part to slow down and pay attention in work zones. Help us bring home all workers safely! www.drivesaferwa.org/take-the-pledge

We are proud of apprentice Jerry Fredrickson-McAllister who received the Good Samaritan Award from Alaska Airlines for saving a little boy's life who was choking on a flight.

Jerry took our initial 3-month training course last spring. During that time, every apprentice takes CPR/first aid training. It’s inspiring to see how Jerry’s quick action and training helped save a life.

Keep up the great work, Jerry!

Thanks to all who participated in the golf tournament at Meadow Park Golf Course in Tacoma, WA.

Through our partnership with Sunrise Dental we were able to raise over $12,000 for charity!
