Re: IBEW Monthly Political Newsletter
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Attached is the third installment of the monthly newsletter that has been initiated
to keep members informed about the new presidential administration. Please read and
circulate it to the general membership. The Biden administration is less than three months
old, but it is operating overtime to get the United States back on its feet.
Every day. President Biden recognizes the primacy of American workers,
collective bargaining and the labor movement. Whether he is expressing his support for a
historic organizing campaign or appointing union members as key personnel in his
administration, never has a president been so public in their support of the values
that the IBEW holds dear.
I encourage you to distribute it to your members and discuss the content at
monthly meetings. Also, please feel free to include its material in your own letters and
communications to rank-and-file members. This newsletter may also be found on the
http://www.ibew.org/political/bbb website, along with more news updates and newsletter
Thank you for your assistance in getting this information out, as it is critically
important that IBEW members stay informed.
With best wishes, I am
Lonnie R. Stephenson
