New exciting details to be announced shortly.  Please stay tuned and check back soon!


Doug King, Assistant Business Manager, was recently on site at the Woodbine Substation which is part of the Maritime Link Project in Sydney, Nova Scotia.  Doug King, ABM, said it was good to see our apprentices having an opportunity to work on a project of this magnitude.  As you can see in the pictures below; the recent snow storms have made it challenging to work on the site. Local 1928's members often work in storms and do what they have to, to get the job done safely. Great job guys, keep up the good work!

Recently, Doug King, Assistant Business Manager, was spending time with his father-in-law; Hank Leblanc of Amherst, Nova Scotia.  Over the years Hank had told Doug stories of when he used to work with Nova Scotia Power & the IBEW, building transmission lines across Nova Scotia in the 1950’s.  Hank’s 89th birthday was Jan 3, 2017.  Hank was born in 1928.  Local 1928 now offers apparel available for purchase at the union hall, so Doug thought this would be a unique birthday gift for Hank.  Having been a former IBEW member Hank was proud to wear Local 1928’s gear with his birth year on it.  January 3rd, 2017 was declared Hank Leblanc Day in his honour.  Happy Birthday Hank!
