I work for a subcontractor and we go to basically all the shipyards in San Diego, but we never see any pay changes and many of our guys make $10-$12, pretty much our only benefit is the overtime and we end up killing ourselves just to bring home a good check. I've heard about laws that state to shipyards that they are supposed to pay more money to the subs for working in a government job but we never see any change, why is that and how does my company get around it

Anonymous, first I apologize for the delayed response. I had some technical difficulty. My response should NEVER had taken this long. To answer your question, one law that I do know is minimum wage law. That is the only requirement of pay unless you are under a labor contract that states otherwise. The Davis–Bacon Act of 1931 is a United States federal law which established the requirement for paying prevailing wages on public works projects. All federal government construction contracts, and most contracts for federally assisted construction over $2,000, must include provisions for paying workers on-site no less than the locally prevailing wages and benefits paid on similar projects.
As of right now, this does not apply to San Diego Shipyard Workers in the private sector. We would like for it to apply to them, however, this can only be made when a vast majority of the Shipyard Workers come together and make it happen. Under the direction of a union, employees can come together, unite the waterfront and make a demand for prevailing wage or some sort of government mandated wage that is based off San Diego's high cost of living. Everyone working on NAVY ships could potentially see a significant wage increase, possibly over $1500 more a month on an average 40 hr work week for a journeyman.

Voice of the shipyard is right subcontractors need a union because all these subcontractors treat there employees as general labor and don't pay them even close to the wages even when at or through nassco, for instance I was a sandblasting pot tender and got paid 12.00 per hour, worked everyday working 8to 10 hours a day, no benefits, no holiday pay no vacation because at the end of the year we all were considered re-hires, even employees who been with the company for years including many who live here and still get perdiem, something needs to be done because way to many employers and really taking advantage of workers

You can email bgodinez@boilermakers.org for more information on starting a union. You have a right to form a union. www.NLRB.gov

Pretty much after every contract, BAE gets millions in award fees. Millions. Look it up. So the only way for us workers to get a decent pay raise is to strike. If the whole waterfront does it what choice do they have but meet our demands. I want better wages and medical. With 2 small kids, I'm barely making it.
Look at the CEO of BAE Ian King Last year he got 1.6 mil in a bonus, look it up, and I am sure that most of the managers on the waterfront get some kind of bonus. All of that from our hard work. What we need is to have fair wages and benefits.
Look at France the Government wanted to raise retirement age by 1 year. The workers protested in the millions and so no change. Well that is what we need to do

just had 2 questions iam thinking in joining nassco but how much does or should a nassco welder, and student welder employed by nassco co. both earn an hour?? just wondering since its all union!!....

Hey my name is Zack. I live in san diego and want to learn how to weld. Could anyone recommend a company I could apprentice with? I can't do an apprenticeship program longer than a year. I don't know if that would change anything. Please any wisdom on the matter would be much appreciated.

Hello Zack, There are two vocational training centers that offer quality welding instruction: (1) ECC San Diego http://www.sdce.edu/job-training/welding (2) CET San Diego http://cetweb.org/for-students/programs/welding-fabrication-/

Once upon a time there were UNIONS...and during those times most of those Union members "cared" because they worked and lived in the U.S. When 60-70 % of each trade (throughout the shipyards) lives across the border, the last thing they care about (after the whistle blows) is the cost of living and/or the livelihood of their coworkers who live on this side of the U.S. border.
They sure don't mind the 3-4 hour wait at the border but don't expect them to stay any minute longer then they have to to get back across...
Let alone pay for dues, that they don't care to know about...because they know someone who'll do your job for any amount "less then" what that position deserves...
