MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:

"At a time of terrifyingly high mortality rates and paltry pay in the new field of electical work, Henry Miller knew what needed to be done, and he dedicated his life to making it happen. From the boarding house where he lived almost 125 years ago, the lineman founded the National Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which would later become the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers."

That boarding house still stands on Dr. Martin Luther King Drive in St. Louis, MO. It has become a museum honoring Henry Miller, one of the 10 original founding fathers of what is now the IBEW. A tour of the museum was one of the highlights of the 39th IBEW International Convention held on September 16 - 23 in St. Louis. It was an honor to attend the Convention and to be accompanied by delegates, brother Mike Fasolino, and sister Karen Kosack. I am appreciative of their professionalism throughout the week.

Other significant business from the convention includes:

  • the reelection of Lonnie Stephenson as President of the IBEW;
  • the reelection of Sam Chilia as Secretary/Treasurer of the IBEW;
  • and the reelection of Don Siegel as Vice President of District 3.
Several changes to improve the IBEW Constitution were also adopted. And RENEW was a major topic.

Back at home in Local 320: 1) keep up the good work regarding call-outs; 2) we need to find ways to make meeting attendance a priority, and 3) remember the vote: Election Day is November 8. "Vote jobs!"

Work Safe, Be Strong, Stay United,
