On December 4, 2021 member Mike McCulough ran the 50K Rocky Fat Ass Run. This is the route that ROCKY ran in the movie Rocky II. The run was Unsupported or Endorsed. Congratulations Mike!
Congratulations to our class of 2021 and 2020 apprenticeship graduates! They’ll join the ranks of our thousands of journeymembers across the Mid-Atlantic building the homes, offices, and skylines of our cities and towns. We’re proud to continue teaching the next generation of roofers.
After much negotiation, U.S. Roofing is now on the site of 2225 Delaware Avenue. Anderson Construction, owner of the building, removed Cannon Roofing to award the project to U.S. Roofing; this is a huge difference for the contractor, which frequently subcontracts to non-union businesses across the trades. This is a win for our members, contractors, and industry as a whole.
Being based in Philadelphia, our union has been able to work with many trusted, fair-paying contractors and employers across the state of Pennsylvania. We’re lucky to have our highly-qualified, skilled workers on all of our job sites, ready to get the job done safely and effectively.
Unfortunately, some contractors don’t meet area standards and wages for their employees, bringing us all down. This week, we’re protesting at Campbell’s Soup alongside Scabby the Rat, calling out Atlantic Roofing’s unfair practices.
Roofers Local 30 is dedicated to getting our workers and trusted contractor partners onto job sites throughout our jurisdiction – and calling out bad actors when we see them undermining our work. Join us in calling out Campbell’s Soup in Camden.
After much negotiation by the Roofers Local 30 agents, the union was asked to step in with its expertise, alongside a trusted union contractor, USRC Roofing Corporation, to see the project through to completion. For decades, we’ve built our reputation of being on time, on budget, and, most importantly, staying safe on the job site. This will be one of many opportunities for the union to showcase our foolproof safety standards and practices, which ensure that every worker can go home to their families safely at the end of the day. This is yet another testament to Roofers Local 30’s Business Agents’ dedication to seeking out opportunities for members and their expertise in negotiating new contracts that are favorable to our members and contractors.
At Roofers Local 30 we give our members access to monumental roofing opportunities. We are currently staring down 5 years of guaranteed work roofing 5 new buildings being built at Drexel University. Local 30 got this! 💪🏾👷♂️🏢
At Roofers Local 30, we look out for our members on and off the job site. Don’t just take it from us, hear it from one of our long-time members, Buddy Osborn, Pastor of the Rock ministries in Kensington, Philadelphia.
In a win for our members, we were able to negotiate to win a new roofing job for the Target in Springfield, Delaware County, this month. Our business representatives were able to negotiate the deal for our contractor, Belcher Roofing, replacing a non-union roofing contractor on the job. Thanks to the staff and managers for working out the details of this job and to our members for providing excellent service and craftsmanship to make this renovation happen!
Milton Budd, a Local 30 member of 39 years, donated pizza to the Atlantic County vaccine megasite. This was Milton’s way of thanking these health care workers for the essential job they’re doing to keep us safe and healthy. The AtlantiCare team, National Guard, FEMA, and ACCC Nursing all thanked Milton for his kind actions.
Our members have also roofed the Convention Center and many other AtlantiCare facilities. A safe building with roofing installed by trained professionals is critical for health care workers and other heroes to perform their jobs. We’re proud of the great work our members are doing in their communities each and every day.
