This pandemic has been a challenging time for us all. We have had a year of uncertainty, but you all have stayed strong. I am happy to finally announce that General Meetings will resume in April! We will continue to check every members temperature at the door and enforce the use of masks and social distancing. We will meet at the Union hall on April 20, 2021 at 7pm. The Nassau Informational Meeting will be April 21, 2021 at 6pm at 519 Central Ave, Bethpage. I look forward to seeing you all again and providing an update on union business since we met last.
We are looking for 3-5 Journeymen Linemen to participate in the 10th annual Climbing for Lost Linemen Memorial Ceremony. This event consists of 4 events: a hurt man rescue, a speed climb, and 2 mystery events. Participants must be willing to attend practices before the event. This event will be on June 18th and 19th in Freeland, Pennsylvania. IBEW 1049 will be responsible for the costs of the hotel room and the entry fees.
If you are interested in participating, available on the dates above and willing to attend practices, please text Bryan Hughes at 917-683-5565.
The IBEW Local 1049 picnic has unfortunately been canceled. We are hoping to schedule the Annual Golf Tournament towards the end of summer, so please keep an eye on the newsletter and website for information about it.
