Come Join Us...

Brothers and Sisters,

If you haven’t heard by now, we tragically lost a member of our IBEW family in June. Brother Torres was a member of Local 41, Buffalo, working in our jurisdiction. His death was preventable.

Please remember the job you do every day is extremely dangerous, and we should not be working on LIVE circuits!

As a result of this accident, I am asking NECA and our signatory contractors to stop and take a moment on their jobsites to discuss how important it is to not work on LIVE wiring.

I am also asking our Training Director to have the conversation with all our apprentices, construction wiremen & construction electricians.

Brothers & Sisters your safety is paramount on the jobsite. Always be mindful and alert of your working environment. Never become complacent with workplace safety.

I want to offer my deepest sympathy to Brother Derek Torres’ family, friends, and co-workers, who could not have prepared for their sudden loss. I ask all of you to keep Brother Torres in your thoughts and prayers.
