I am happy to see that finaly the locals are putting forth the effort to stop basterdising the union divers.  I am part of Local 2375 out of CA and man the union here is actually getting rid of programs. There excuses are always because of bugget cuts. My responce what the f*** are my union dues going to.  The idea of putting together a program like that was brought up long ago and nothing ever became. 


Good Job Local 454

Thanks Brother, were working on being the best Diving Local in the country, we want to improve and organize the wh*** industry!!!  Better Divers through better training means our contractors can be more competitive than the other guys, hence we win more work.  Talk to you soon!!  Dave Roncinske Local 454

Hey Guys,


I am from the East Coast of Canada in which there is NO active union for us divers.  I have been apart of the Maritime Union of Australia when I was there and they also look after their boys.

Just curious if you have any tips or hints on how to possible get something organized out here to improve and standardize the work force and conditions.  Obviously creating a comparitive wage base across the region allowing competant divers to know exactly where they stand no matter which company wins the awarded contract.


Any info is always appreciated.


Fellow in arms.

Hi Evan,


I would look up the Local Carpenter Union in your area and ask them if they represent any Divers and or Marine Contractors.  The Ontario Carpenters number is 909-824-9033, or email this guy d***soncam@hotmail.com, I have talked to him before.  Let me know how you make out, Dave

thanks David


I will contact him and see how I make out and let you know.
