Greetings ULC! Good work to Ellen for getting us all this detailed information for Labor Walks across the Empire State with all the tools we need to get IBEW members to the polls to vote our values. The Congressman Tim Bishop race down here on Long Island is getting a lot of attention - and I bet other heated Congressional races are attracting a lot of media statewide as well. IBEW 2032's Ben Murtagh sent me some photos from the Massena Labor Day Parade - I put them up on our website and congrats to IBEW 2199 & 2154 in Buffalo for sending out their inaugural issue of The Pipeline email last week. I am working with them to help develop communications as they enter into bargaining with their employer National Fuel. As usual, below are some stories that Glen and I have been tracking and don't be strangers...send me some stuff once in while especially shots of the members volunteering for these critical campaigns.
