Bart Pantoja, Business Community Representative
City of Residence: Foster City

A third-generation union member, Bart Pantoja began a career in union construction in 1996 as an apprentice glazier, architectural glass & metal worker and achieved journeyman status in 1999. He served in a variety of different roles in the glazing industry including crew lead, foreman and eventually company superintendent. He worked on several projects in the Bay Area and Sacramento, as well as on projects for Bay Area companies in Seattle and the Northern Nevada region. Out of appreciation for the opportunities being a union construction worker provided Bart and his family, he dedicated much of his time in service to his union, Glaziers Local 718. That commitment led to him being elected an executive board officer, and in 2017 as a business agent for the local covering seven counties including San Mateo county. Nearly 5 years to the day after becoming a BA for the Glaziers, the delegates of the San Mateo County Building Trades Council elected him as their Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer.

In addition to his role with the Building Trades Council, Bart serves as First Vice President of the San Mateo Labor Council’s Executive Board, Chair of the San Mateo Labor Paper Editorial Board and of the San Mateo Trades Introduction Program Steering Committee, and sits on the Board of the San Mateo County Union Community Alliance.
