As we will be participating in Labour Day events virtually in Nova Scotia this upcoming weekend, I reflect on the important role organized labour plays and in particular began to reflect on the important jobs being done by our members in each and every community across Nova Scotia and PEI.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is a collection of workers from across Canada who work in construction, utilities, maintenance, and many other valuable professions.  We work in every community in every part of Nova Scotia and PEI.  We are the people who maintain power lines, we run the power plants and we are the ones who go out in the storm to restore power when the weather is at its worst.

We are proud of the work we do and we are proud to be part of each and every community in Nova Scotia and PEI.  The work we do can sometimes be dangerous and we always think of safety first.  Safety not only for us, but also for the people we serve.  

When you see an electrical inspector, a power line technician, a power plant operator or other members of the IBEW in your community, we are easy to find. We are hockey coaches, volunteers, fundraisers and we work closely with many charitable organizations. Please take a moment to reflect on the important role IBEW members play in keeping you and your family safe, keeping the lights on and being part of your community and your local economy.

I am proud to be the Business Manager for IBEW Local 1928.  It is a privilege to represent such a dedicated membership. My wish for all Local 1928 members is that you can continue to work, play and raise families across Nova Scotia and PEI for many years to come.

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You. Labour Day is here. It’s time to say goodbye to summer and wish everyone a happy and safe Labour Day!

In Solidarity,

Jim Sponagle
Business Manager
IBEW Local 1928
