Message from Business Manager Leo Yanez
Brothers and Sisters, as the year winds down we have to look back and reflect on how this year affected our lives. It has being a year full of surprises, changes and to some extent some disappointments. The war being waged against organized labor, politics as usual in Washington, the petty challenges of the Affordable Care Act, poverty and unemployment; these issues dominate the news media and the sensationalist reporting of it is meant to divide working people.
But it's not all bad. We all have moments throughout this year that have added happiness to our lives. From newborns, graduations, well deserved vacations, work milestones, birthdays, etc. These finer things in life contribute to adding to our quality of life. All the negativism of 2013 diminishes with the promise of peace and goodwill of the Christmas Season with the new year in the horizon.
The staff and officers of your IBEW Local 83 would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous, Healthy and Happy New Year. May God bless you and keep you all safe and bring you great joy at this celebratory time of year.
