The officers, E-Board and staff of IBEW 21 would like to wish all of our members and their families a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
With the start of the holiday season we encourage you to shop union when purchasing gifts and groceries. The AFL-CIO has declared the ten days following Thanksgiving as “Buy Union Week.”
Given the volatile state of the economy—marked by huge job losses, declines in take-home pay and increased costs—it makes sense to focus the purchasing power of union families on the goods and services those families create. Supporting union made products and services help keep good jobs in the community.
For more information on Buy Union Week visit the AFL-CIO’s Union Label Trades Department’s website and go to “Find Union Made Products and Services” in the yellow box near the top of the page to find ideas for those on your shopping list. Go there now by clicking here.
IBEW 21 Days of Giving
If you haven’t heard the IBEW 21 Days of Giving will run from December 1-21, 2013. We feel we can rebuild a sense of community among Local 21 members by assisting those in need.
Our first ever Local-wide food drive begins on Sunday then on December 19th we will be volunteering at Mercy Home. These activities are just beginning of our community involvement. In addition to these events we are also seeking opportunities for volunteer activities in your community such as assisting in disaster relief, volunteering at soup kitchens, senior centers, and children’s homes just to name a few.
Stay tuned for more details and how you can help.
