On January 14-18, 2015 Brandon and Deandre attended the Electrical Workers Minority Caucus’s 25th Annual Leadership Conference in Atlanta, GA. The theme for this years event was “Forever Moving Forward Keeping The Legacy Alive”. The EWMC encourages all members especially women and minorities to be active in their local unions and become leaders in the labor movement. EWMC pushes to have a union leadership that is as diverse as its membership. This year had 517 delegates to the conference and was the largest to date.

By now many of you may know that the IBEW has a Young Workers initiative called RENEW which stands for Reach out and Engage the Next-gen of Electrical Workers. The mission of RENEW is to inspire the next generation of IBEW workers to become active in their local union by focusing on issues important to younger workers, providing education about the IBEW and the labor movement, and fostering relationships with members and local union leadership.

“We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped.
