Attack on Nevada Workers!

Danny L. Thompson, Executive Secretary Treasurer
nv.aflcio.org/nevada

 

TOMORROW, Wednesday February 4th, there will be a hearing on SB119 to exempt school and state university construction from prevailing wage. WE NEED YOU to call and email the Senators below to tell them why this bill is bad for Nevada’s working families. 

Senators to contact:

Pete Goicoechea Pete.Goicoechea@sen.state.nv.us, 775-684-1447

Joe Hardy Joe.Hardy@sen.state.nv.us, 775-684-1462

Mark Lipparelli Mark.Lipparelli@sen.state.nv.us, 775-684-1475

Kelvin Atkinson Kelvin.Atkinson@sen.state.nv.us, 775-684-1429

David Parks David.Parks@sen.state.nv.us, 775-684-6504

Talking points on SB119:

  • Eliminating prevailing wage will lower my wages.  Why would you want to do that when the construction industry is still in recovery?  Prevailing wage ensures that I can provide for my family. 
  • This bill means I would have to leave the state to find a job with good wages, while out-of state workers come in to build my kids’ schools.
  • Prevailing wage ensures that jobs go to local workers whose families shop in local businesses, strengthening local economies.
  • Research shows that repeal of prevailing wage laws leads to a younger, less educated and less trained workforce.
  • We want our schools to be built by skilled, in-state workers, so we get the job done right the first time.
  • Eliminating prevailing wage will not save the state money.  Studies show that higher construction wages are off-set by greater productivity, better technologies, and other employer savings.

Now is the time for us to stand together to protect middle-class working families in Nevada.  Call and email these Senators TODAY!

In Solidarity,

Danny L. Thompson

The Henry Miller Story

Henry Miller, who died more than 110-years ago, was the founder, first president and driving force behind the first union of electrical workers in North America – the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

Despite the key role he played in the history of the IBEW and the early labor movement, little is known about Miller’s life and career.

This short film from the IBEW Media Department sheds some light on the life and times of Brother Miller and the dawn of the IBEW.

CenturyLink Unit Meeting Reminder

Sisters and Brothers,

All active members are encouraged to attend their monthly Union Meeting. This is the time to find out what’s going on in your Union. If you have questions or concerns regarding issues in your work place, or just a basic question, this is the place to get your answers. If you have concerns with something being done here, come and join in the discussion. This is where you, as a Union member, get to be heard and get information pertaining to your work place and the Local Union. Don’t forget to bring a friend; anyone who brings a member who has not attended a meeting in at least three (3) months will get a free shirt, or anyone who organizes a new member will get one of their choice. I look forward to seeing you, Tuesday, February 3, 2015 @ 6:30 p.m.

In Solidarity,

Jesse Newman

Business Manager/Financial Sec
