The summer is here, the weather is getting warmer and the kids are out of school. While we all love the warm days, spending time at the shore or in the pool, the warm weather also brings numerous heat related issues for a workforce that works out in the sun or in hot power plants. Once again, IBEW is teaming up with OSHA to provide some important tips on how to stay safe in the heat and avoid heat related issues. I have included these suggestions below. Please take a moment to read these and refresh your memory after a long, cold winter.

As we approach July and August, Local 1820 will begin preparing for and starting negotiations with the company on a new contract. I encourage everyone to keep an eye out for future issues of The PiPELiNE, where we will be providing updates on our progress. If you have a friend or co-worker who does not get our union email or text message, please have them sign up by clicking here.

I want to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday.
