Any one who has not applied for the Metro electrical license, DO NOT send in your application. There are some legal issues with the bill, and are being addressed by our legal department. As soon as we have more information we will post it on the website and the job line.
Local 429 has restructured the jurisdiction into Zones that will better serve our membership. The PDF file will show the map of counties(Tennessee and Kentucky) and, on page 2 of the PDF, a breakdown of the counties that make up each Zone. Thank you for your patience with this, as we know it will benefit the members in the long run.
The annual IBEW Motorcycle Ride will take place on Saturday, July 19, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. in Morgantown, West Virginia. We are calling this year’s ride The IBEW Ride 4 A Cure. Last year we rode through the beautiful state of Pennsylvania and this year we will ride through the mountains and forests in the surrounding area of Morgantown, West Virginia. We were there five years ago and all who attended had a wonderful time. We have a new route mapped out so everyone will enjoy the beautiful mountains, forests and state parks of West Virginia.
This year’s registration fee is $35.00 per participant. You may register online by visiting www.ibew.org and clicking on IBEW Ride for the Cure. You may want to register early as we may have to limit the number of riders in order to have a safe ride.
Please contact The Lakeview Resort and Spa to secure your room reservations by calling 1-800-624-8300 and tell the operator you are with the IBEW Motorcycle Ride and the dates of your reservations as needed. The IBEW has a block of rooms available on a first-come, first-served basis with a cut-off date of June 17, 2014. The room rate is $109.00 per night. Updates on the ride will be posted on www.ibew.org and www.ibewhourpower.com.
