New Forums @

The folks over at recently put their forums up online for IBEW members to discuss the issues and jobs occurring in Local 46. Being electricians themselves and not marketing gurus they are having a slow start getting the word out about their forums.  In full disclosure I am one of those electricians that have helped them put together their boards… … so, with that said please check them out. The guys over there have welcomed CORE 46 to add a section for a couple of forums specifically for Contract Proposals and Motions & Actions for discussion. We will be posting our contract ideas up section by section for open discussion.

Head over to and register to check it out for yourself.

Stewards Monthly Meeting – Not So Fast

Last month the membership of IBEW Local 46 unanimously voted to have a monthly Stewards meeting.  Yesterday, I received an announcement from the Hall, that the Stewards meeting will be quarterly. Why does the Hall refuse to listen to the membership? Why are Stewards being blocked from meeting more regularly? The Motorcycle club meets monthly… is that more important than organizing the Stewards in the Local?
