I am a long time Union skilled trade worker. I have a few acquaintances that work or have worked at the lab. I have heard some good and bad things about working at the lab. I am considering apply for a position but was looking for a few opinions of what it is like to work at the lab. Can I please ask what is a typical day like for a trades employee, pay, the benefits, and Union leadership. I would also like to know if all work falls under Davis Bacon prevailing wage guidelines. If Davis Bacon applies are there two different rates for the site in Livermore and the other site out inTracy?
For those wondering I am looking to stay in my trade but am looking for something more stable and closer to home. I currently drive over two hours each way to job sites that are all over the bay.
Thanks for your open and honest replies
