1. Granite test
Local 3’s history in the rock, sand and gravel industry goes back to its very founding in 1939. Working in quarries, batch plants, and asphalt plants as Dinkey engineers, steam shovel operators, powedermen and wagon drillers, members earned up to $1.40 an hour, a lot in those days, for working in the dangerous industry.
Much has changed since then. Today there are approximately 800 Local 3 members working in four states under a number of labor contracts in the rock, sand and gravel industry.
