Giving thanks for a unified union.

Message from Business Manager Don Daley
As we do each Thanksgiving Day, we gather for family reunions and thank God for his infinite blessings and bountiful harvest. In life, we often find it easy to ask for favors but sometimes it is difficult to thank those who have done so much for us. Please consider something we should be thankful for. This year our union has faced a number of challenges. But through all of it our membership has remained together in solidarity. Even though our gas and utility members who once worked for on company are now split between two separate companies, we still maintain our identity as Local 1049 members first and foremost. We stand together as one union, and your leadership here at IBEW Local 1049 appreciates the indivisibility of our membership. The strength of our unity is a resolute connection that is bonded by the mortar of our rich history, and one that we all are proud of. As your leadership, we are truly blessed to lead an organization which such fine, professional and dedicated union members as yourselves. On behalf of the Business Staff, Officers, Executive Board and office staff, please accept our heartfelt wishes to you and your families for a Thanksgiving Holiday filled with fruitfulness and love.
