Friday, September 13th we will have our annual cookout to celebrate Labor. There will be no Labor Day picnic this year as we normally partner with the Central Labor Council. These are traditionally done on even numbered years when we have Federal, State, and Local Elections. Our celebration will start by serving food starting at 5:00 pm until the union meeting starts at 7:00pm.
Beginning July 1st, we are introducing Credit/Debit Card recurring monthly, or quarterly payments for dues and death benefits. We have a form to sign up to authorize us to charge your recurring dues /death payments monthly or quarterly without having to call in each month/quarter. We will be accepting Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit/debit cards.
The non-union intends to water down our current State Registered Approved Apprenticeships leading the way organizations such as temporary hiring agencies and so-called trade schools (Altierus) by getting IRAP regulations passed and getting funding filtered away from traditional programs (like ours) and into these non-traditional ones.
The NECA/IBEW Powering America Team is continually committed to working together; their craftsmen and women are the safest and most skilled professionals in the world and their contractors find solutions to complex problems like recruitment, cost containment, and innovation.
The IBEW has joined the National Child Identification Program to provide free Child ID Kits to help our members protect their children. Each local union will be provided with one free kit per member. Please contact our office at 813-621-6451 if you are interested in obtaining one.
