Please come by to help out with our Door-Knocking Blitz Tuesday and Wednesday May 14th and 15th.
Our Blitzes are a critical and valuable part of our overall organizing efforts to grow our Local Union.
We're getting back to the principles of our founding member Henry Miller and talking face-to-face with electrical workers about the benefits of joining together for better wages, benefits and working conditions. And creating a better society where more workers have a voice in their workplace and the ability to enjoy the American Dream.
The “blitz” is primarily focused on talking with unrepresented (non-union) electricians on their doorsteps about the electrical construction industry throughout our jurisdiction and sharing opportunities available through IBEW membership.
Our ability to improve wages/benefits and working conditions is dictated by union density and market share and those are increased by increasing our membership. Growing our union is good for all of us!
We’ll begin Tuesday at 4:00pm at our Training Center (3210 E. Ferry Ave. Spokane)with food and a a brief training about the Blitz, then out knocking on doors.
Wednesday we will meet back at the Training Center at 9:30am for the Northwest Organizers' monthly meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend. (this meeting is usually in Portland) And then again at 4:00pm for some food and de-brief of the day before, then head out around 4:30pm to finish up visiting unrepresented electrician's houses.
We look forward to seeing you at the Blitz and please feel free to attend just for the door-knocking or the Northwest Organizers' meeting or whatever you want.
And we are having another "Industry Night" Thursday May 16th where unrepresented electricians can meet and talk wityh signatory contractors and our IBEW 73 members.
