The holidays are here and a new year is just around the corner. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for making the transition to Business Manager this year an easy and smooth one. Thanks to the membership, our union is growing stronger every day. I appreciate the hard work that you put in to show the skill and professionalism that makes IBEW 1049 one of the best locals in the country. I hope that everyone has an enjoyable and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year.
