Virgil Hamilton, Director of Inside Construction Organizing, will be conducting a Workshop at Local 238 June 27, 2020. All officers, Eboard, Apprenticeship Department, and Organizers of the Local will be attending various sessions June 26, 27, and 29. This is an extremely rare opportunity to meet and learn from one of the brightest minds in the IBEW. All members, active and retired, Journeyman and Apprentice, are encouraged to attend the Saturday June 27 session! From this workshop series a Strategic Organizing Plan will be developed. As we discovered during negotiating committee discussions, our membership is feeling the stresses that come with being a growing local. There is a skilled labor shortage, pressure for us to do more with fewer people, a need to bring in more unrepresented workers to build our ranks, and a need to come together as a Brotherhood regardless of how we arrived into membership. Our ability to grow membership, attract contractors, and gain market share will depend on actions we take right now at this critical point in our 117 year history. Don't miss this opportunity to help guide Local 238 into the future.
