Local 986 will continue to maintain an office and staff in Santa Maria to better serve the members throughout the Central Coast of California. We want to welcome our new staff members Lynn Swenson, Dave Latimer, JJ Garcilazo, Susan Carlson and Debra Cano.The merger will take effect following the anticipated approval of the IBT General Executive Board.
