Hello and welcome to our union’s website. This Labor Day Weekend, let us remember its true meaning. Let us find comfort in the well-earned, hard fought rights of the working to middle class. Rights like the 40 hour work week, health plans, paid vacation and holidays. Rights, so many of us take for granted. Unions have bargained long and hard to negotiate and protect these benefits. Our union members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1049 are working all around you and all across Long Island, days, nights, weekends, and holidays; Rain, snow, sleet or the summer heat. We respond with diligence to keep the lights on and the gas flowing. We are the hardworking men and women that are proud to put our skills to work to maintain and restore the reliability of Long Island’s Electrical and Gas distribution systems. We are dedicated to our craft and to our communities. So this Labor Day weekend we would like to wish all of our family, friends, neighbors and residents of Long Island a Happy & Safe Labor Day Weekend!
We are IBEW 1049, We Power Long Island and empower our communities.
