On Saturday, September 16th, IBEW Local 94, along with 200 members and guests, paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of this year’s retirees, at its annual dinner dance held at Harrah’s, Atlantic City.
If you’ve ever experienced a power outage – especially in the dead of winter or during a sweltering heatwave – and breathed a sigh of relief when the lights came back on, take a second this July 10 to thank a lineworker for making it happen.
The IBEW and the Edison Electric Institute, an association of investor-owned electric companies, have designated July 10 Lineworker Appreciation Day.
Every year the National Association of Letter Carriers and the United States Postal Service, along with the United Food and Commercial Workers, AFL-CIO and more host the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. It is one of the largest single day food drives in the country. It is so successful because it is so easy to participate. All you have to do is leave your donation by the mailbox this Saturday, May 13th and your union mail carrier will pick it up when they deliver the mail.
National Lineman Appreciation Day is a time to express our utmost appreciation to the great men and women that work so hard for us every day. It's our honor to celebrate the hard work, innovation, and dedication of Electrical Lineworkers. #thankalineman.
Today is Equal Pay Day, but rather than being a day to celebrate, it is a reminder of the continued work that is needed to reduce the wage gap between men and women in our country. Congressman Donald Norcross, our union brother, is an unwavering advocate for pay equity, and we encourage you to read and share his below op-ed, reinforcing the need to address wage inequality.
WILD women are leading the way forward. This much was made clear during the rousing 14th Annual Women in Leadership Development (WILD) Conference held at the East Brunswick Hilton from March 3-4, 2017.
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO applauds IBEW Local 94 on its recent organizing victory at Linden Cogen, and we are proud to welcome 39 new members to our union family. As Local 94 reports, this campaign took a lot of organizing from both within the union and within the workplace. We are proud to recognize the hard work of all parties involved in securing this victory.

In New Jersey, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 94 is hard at work organizing new job sites. One site, the Cogen Plant in Linden is set to have their union vote on Thursday, January 26th.
The Co-Gen plant in Linden NJ employees 39 people and provides steam and electricity to the oil refineries outside of New York City. It also provides 700 Megawatts of power to New York City through an underground cable. While it is not the biggest power plant, it plays a vital role in the electrical grid.
