BUILDING AN ORGANIZING ARMY!
IBEW Local 890 will be hosting an organizing training opportunity open to all members. The focus of this skill training is to teach members to effectively engage non-union electricians and provide good, quality interactions with a target audience. Local 890 is expanding at a rapid rate. With this growth comes the need for more talented electricians. It is our duty as a local, to man the work provided by our contractors with qualified, skilled manpower. We will need to create a culture of "all hands on deck" organizing.

When: Thursday, March 22, 2018
