Around the Local

As we put the year 2020 in the rearview mirror let’s reflect on the strength and resolve our members have shown by upholding the Code of Excellence by continuing to deliver quality work in extraordinary conditions.  This year has not been easy, but as we all know the brotherhood of the IBEW only grows stronger when the going gets tough.  We are a proud union, and we will continue to rise to the occasion.

The CEU deadlines for 2020 have been extended.

We have new dates available, online and a few in person.

To schedule a class or for more information, please call the Local 90 JATC at (203) 265-3820.

As of December 15, 2020 the next 2 monthly union meetings will be cancelled for the health and safety of all parties.
