Protect Yourselves and Others

I just want to thank the IBEW for its undying support for the union and its fellow brothers and sisters. Secondly, I want to thank you for the July 2020 issue of The Electrical Worker, especially all the nice photos of all the workers wearing masks. They're wearing them to not only protect themselves but to protect their fellow co-workers. With all of the craziness that is happening all over the world with the pandemic, protests against racism, and police brutality, it feels good that the IBEW is there doing its part and showing its support. Some places and people really don't seem too concerned about this virus that is running rampant all over the world, but I take it seriously, especially for my family, friends, and community. There's only one way to slow the spread of this monster and that is for people to really start caring and start wearing a mask. I live in Virginia and cases are going upward as I am writing, so I promise to do my part to slow the spread of this virus and to protect others around me. Keep up the great work.

A Family Affair

A father, two sons and a grandson represent over 100 years of combined experience in Saint John, New Brunswick, Local 1524. I'm a newly certified journeyman at Saint John Energy, pictured here, top left, with Craig Waugh, bottom left, Steve Waugh, top right, and Fraser Waugh, bottom right. We couldn't be prouder to keep it in the family.
