Business Managers Message Updates

  • Become a Fighter

    You often hear the expression, "they are a real fighter." Or, "They are in for the fight of their life." I most often hear these type of expressions in relation to sports activities. Also, maybe in reference to someone unfortunately "fighting" an illness or disease. General George Patton once said...

  • Millennials: The Growing Generation

    Millennials, I hear a lot of talk about this generation.

  • Being Silent is More Damaging Than the Act Itself

    One of the great movie scenes is the beginning of the "The Boondock Saints."  A Monsignor is addressing his congregation, speaking of the murder of Kitty Genovese, which was witnessed by many people, but no one called for help.  Because they either didn't want to get involved, or thought someone...

  • Vote No on Con Con

    On November 7, 2017, New Yorkers will be asked if the state should hold a convention to re-write our state constitution.

  • Become an Active Union Member

    Being a member in a Union is not a spectator sport. Unions were not designed to have its members sit in the stands and talk about the action taking place on the field. Members of Local 10 IBEW need to know their stewards and officers. They should also have their contact information. Members also...

  • Respect in the Workplace

    Webster's Dictionary tells us that "RESPECT" is defined as - to show consideration or esteem for, to relate to, courtesy or considerate treatment. Respect is something, as an IBEW Member, that guides us through our whole day. We must respect ourselves enough to do our job the right way. Respect...
