Brothers and Sisters.
I want to make it clear to all members that IBEW Local 1928 stands in support of the teachers in Nova Scotia and their Local Union, NSTU. We will stand alongside of NSTU members as they struggle to fight off Bill 75 and will oppose any legislation the government imposes on NSTU members which erodes the collective bargaining process. I urge you to reach out to your MLAs and Councillors to voice your displeasure on how our government is handling this matter. We can all make a difference come election time. "We are a voice if we stand united."
IBEW Local 1928
Recently Assistant Business Manager, Doug King, met with Local 1928 members working on the Maritime Link Project. Local 1928 has had a lot of new members join the Local in recent months. In speaking with Mike Perry (Unit Chair & Shop Steward) he said the new members are working hard and working safe. IBEW Local 1928 is proud to be a part of the Maritime Link Project and thankful of the hard work and dedication by the membership in making this project a success.
