Dear Sisters and Brothers:
As you may know, the Democratic National Convention (DNC) will be held August 17, through August 20, 2020, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most events including the nominations of the president and vice presidential will be held virtually rather than in person. I expect several IBEW members to participate in the convention as delegates.
Inside wage allocation ballots were mailed on Thursday. Contact the hall at (253) 475-1190 If you do not receive a ballot in the next few days and believe you should have. The negotiated raise is $2.60 an hour and we recommend allocating $2.48 to wages and NEBF and $0.12 to the 401k.
Please take the time to vote, and make sure to return the ballots to the hall by July 30th.
