Our members are recognized as professionals within the industry. We understand that the working class people of California are its foundation!
Local 185 Officers and Representatives are individuals who are committed to serving our membership in securing a safe work environment, receiving an honest days pay for an honest days work and in helping them to reach their retirement goals.
