On Saturday, May 15, 2021 we had the privilege of celebrating the accomplishments of our latest Journeyman Lineman class. Our High-Voltage Lineman Apprenticeship Program has developed what I consider to be the finest lineman in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
The deep commitment of our instructors and trainers, along with our partnership with the Northeast Joint Apprenticeship and Training program has given these fine, young line workers a lifetime career. I am proud of every one of our brothers who has stepped up and knows their duty to respond to outages and storm restoration. They face the challenges associated with this job in order to ensure our Long Island neighbors have comfort and safety in their homes and businesses. We are the engine that drives the Long Island economy. We are the ones that everyone turns to when the lights are out.
I wish every one of you good fortune for a lifetime career, thank you all.
