5 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS FACING THE ENERGY INDUSTRY IN THE COMING YEAR

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

The state faces major decisions on energy issues that will affect residents and businesses. Regulatory officials and policymakers have struggled to resolve for years. Among the issues are concerns related to New Jersey having the highest energy costs in the Nation, creating a system to make the power grid less vulnerable to outrages during extreme weather, and determining the right mix of clean energy sources, such as solar systems and smaller power plants to provide power to local manufacturers. Most of those policies reflect choices made by the Christie administration, but to a large extent have yet to be realized. As the energy sector is rapidly changing from the traditional deliverer of the bulk of electricity to customers towards distribution of generated electricity from small local power plants.

IBEW member elected to Congress

Tuesday, November 25, 2014
NJ AFL-CIO: The New Jersey labor movement made history by electing our union brother Donald Norcross, IBEW Local 351, to the U.S. Congress. This would not have been possible without thousands of union members who volunteered each week leading up to the election. We also congratulate Sen. Cory Booker on his election to a full term in the U.S. Senate, and applaud the election of 31 labor candidates, bringing the total to 814 election victories through our Labor Candidates Program. The win ratio was 82% with four races too close to call. New Jersey's labor movement was strong and united throughout the campaign season, securing important victories at every level of government. The Central Labor Councils, Building Trades Councils, our affiliates and thousands of volunteers made our Labor 2014 program the most successful in the country. A total of 291,725 union members' homes were visited this election cycle. Without your help assembling labor packets, staffing phone banks and participating in labor walks, such success would not have been possible. A strong labor movement gives us the power to elect the right people to represent us! Working together in solidarity, our members made the difference. We commend Roy Cho, Aimee Belgard and Janice Kovach for championing New Jersey's working families and upholding middle-class values, though they did not prevail. We congratulate the returning members of Congress on their victories, and look forward to seeing many newly elected union members take the oath of office and continue moving our state forward. Thanks for your tireless efforts in making these historic victories possible.

Local 94 leads the way in the Annual Tank Pull on June 22nd

Sunday, June 22, 2014
A year's worth of committee meetings, planning and fundraising yielded another big success this past weekend-IBEW Local 94's "Pullin' Badgers" Team, along with PSEG's "Power Rangers," both won first place for their fund raising category benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. IBEW Local 94, led by Carl Romao, Business Agent, won first position in the category, Organizational Fund Raising Teams, with a very impressive $8,880.  Both teams competed with 45 other teams from around the state in quick pull and limited weight pull events, tugging 80,000 pounds of tractor trailer and Army tank from a dead stop, on the streets of Clifton, New Jersey.
 
All told, this 5th annual Tank Pull Competition, run by a Committee from the St Phillips Knights of Columbus Council, Clifton, raised over $700,000 to support the Wounded Warrior Project and other veterans groups in the Clifton area. This was our 2nd year participating and this year's entire event was dedicated to honor Sgt. James "Jimmy" Harvey, II, a PSE&G, IBEW Local 94 employee who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011.  Jimmy's parents, James and Susan Harvey, were given proclamations and plaques honoring their son's bravery and ultimate sacrifice by Clifton's Mayor James Anzaldi, and Herb Meyer, State Deputy of the Knights of Columbus.
 
The media, including the news outlets CBS and NJ Channel 12, spent most of the day at the fundraiser, filming competitive events and interviewing participants. We would like to extend our thanks to brothers Jeff Krill, Anthony Joyner and Mike Butler for their tremendous effort. In addition we would like to thank everyone who was kind enough to donate to this worthy cause.
