Congratulations to Local 302 member Esdras Flores for receiving the Engineer of the Year Award from the Washington State Society of Healthcare Engineering – Pacific Northwest region!

This award aims to honor the remarkable front-line staff who are the backbone of hospitals.

Esdras is the lead engineer for the Facilities Maintenance team at Seattle Children's Hospital and was chosen for this award because he is:

  • Always willing to do whatever it takes, whether he is on shift or not, to ensure the facility is as safe as it can be for patients and families.
  • Relentless in looking for simple solutions in complex systems
  • Dedicated to helping those around him grow and learn

Esdras works on all types of maintenance operations including plumbing, HVAC, refrigeration, pumps, valves, kitchen equipment, operating rooms, and laboratories. He collaborates with other departments, is a wealth of knowledge, a main source of troubleshooting problems, and provides training for staff members.

“I take great pride in being a member of IUOE Local 302 for over 6 years,” said Esdras. “The networking with fellow members and the exchange of knowledge have been invaluable. I appreciate the collaborative spirit within the union.

“One aspect I find particularly rewarding is applying the skills acquired to contribute to a great cause here at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

"Knowing that our work plays a vital role in keeping the hospital operational for the kids who need the hospital services is truly rewarding.”

Thank you to everyone who attended our 13 holiday parties across Washington, Idaho, and Alaska. Happy Holidays to one and all and here's to a great New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Local 302 members, staff, partners, and their families!

Local 302 Members: Did you know you can register or re-register for the Out of Work List on our website? Click here for next steps.

Here are some tips for success:

  • Re-register for the OWL well in advance of your registration expiration date. If registered for 90 days, then re-register every 60 days. You do not want to risk being late registering and getting dropped off the list.
  • Make sure Dispatch has your current phone number.
  • Answer your phone, or the job might go to the next person.

It's time for the annual Toy Drive! Local 302 is collecting new, unwrapped toys and/or canned food to help bring joy and support to children in need.

Please bring items to your local hall or the holiday party in your district (no later than your holiday party please). 

Here at Local 302 we care deeply about the physical and mental health of our members.

Around the holidays and throughout the rest of the year some people may struggle with mental health, substance abuse, or need support.

Should you or someone you know need help, reach out to your Field Representative or refer to the resources found on our website here.

Happy Halloween from all of us at Local 302 — stay spooky and safe out there!
