This Sunday is Lineworker Appreciation Day. The line men and women of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 1049 have never shied away from their responsibility to help their Long Island neighbors. Our lineworkers often work in challenging and dangerous conditions in order to keep our homes and businesses powered every single day. I would like to take a moment today to honor these dedicated and committed workers who work around the clock to keep us all safe and comfortable. Whether they are hardening our systems for upcoming storms or restoring the power after a storm, they never shy away from serving their community.
Our members pride themselves on their continued commitment to providing safe living conditions for our communities. I am proud to call you all my brothers and sisters. Please join me on Sunday by using the hashtag #ThankALineWorker on social media.
