For the sixth year in row, Local 3 members volunteered their time and labor to particiapte in the Labor of Love project. This activity is part of the Hawaii State AFL-CIO’s Labor Community Services Program, and supports a different school within the Hawaii Department of Education each year. Maui Business Representative Willie Greig, Hawaii Operating Engineers Industry Stabilization Fund (HOEISF), Executive Director Brandon Ili and HOEISF Maui Representative Dwight Burns were on hand, along with Ronnie Rojas, Conrad Tau-a and apprentice Tobie Burns, who spent their Saturday diging and grading a new concrete area at Iao Intermediate School. They later joined members of other union to paint the parking lots, bathrooms and other portions of the campus, do minor repairs, and make other campus improvements.
“It’s always a pleasure to participate in community driven projects, such as the Labor of Love, and it’s an honor to have worked alongside some of our members this past weekend, ” said HOEISF Maui Rep. Dwight Burns. “We hope to do more projects like this in the near future”
