Thank you to the women of the IUEC

March is "Womens History Month", and I would like to take a moment to celebrate the women of the IUEC.  There was a day when you did not see women in our trade.  Those days are long gone, and we have very strong women in our trade today.  They have paid their dues and proven that they can do the job and do it very well.  Working women have struggled and advanced with the support of the labor movement, in most cases, breaking through obstacles and barriers.  Their accomplishments have made a path for future generations to achieve greater heights.  As Mother Jones once said, "Women need to realize that with what they have in their hands there is no limit to what they could accomplish.  The trouble is they let the capitalists make them believe they wouldn't be ladylike."  What a great quote.  We would like to directly express our support for all of our women, here in Local #10 and across the country, and say thank you for a job well done.

Stay safe, work hard, and always be PROUD of who you are and what you have done.

Rest in Peace...

From Safety Director Mike Langer:

It is with regret to inform you that there was an on the job accident, Wednesday February 27, 2019 in North Dakota, Local #9, Minneapolis, MN jurisdiction.  Assistant Director of Safety Randy Storr has been in the process of investigating the accident.  Brother Joshua Bosch was electrocuted while taking a service call on an escalator.  He had been in the hospital with the hopes that he would recover, but did not.  Josh lost his struggle last night on March 5th and passed away.  Brother Bosch was 38 years old and started with the IUEC November 5, 2006 and worked as a maintenance mechanic for Thyssenkrupp Elevator.  Brother Bosch leaves behind his wife, Stephanie and 2 daughters, Avery and Olivia, ages 8 & 12.

No other information is avaiolable at this time.

Please keep Brother Bosch and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you and work safe.

Mike Langer, IUEC Safety Director

Please mark your Calendars...

The Local #10 annual Spring Blood Drive will be on Thursday, May 23, 2019, from 1pm to 6pm in the Big Union Hall.  Please mark your calendars and try and make it to help the American Red Cross bring up their blood supplies.  The Red Cross has been in an emergency blood state since the fall of last year.  As much as I hate to say it, some people who need emergency surgery, treatment for cancer, and life saving surgeries, have not been able to do so.  They don't have enough blood, to be on stand by, for all of the treatments and surgeries that are scheduled and you add in accidents and they are really in trouble.  Being in one of the most dangerous trades out there, we need to know that if one of our Brothers or Sisters gets hurt and needs blood, they will be able to get it.  We don't plan accidents, so when they happen we are totally caught off guard, and so is the Red Cross.  No matter how hard they work to bring up the levels, the every day need keeps coming, and bringing them back down again.  Please help Local #10, do our part, to help our trade as well as our community.  You can go on line and schedule at or you can call Tammie, at the Hall, and she will get you scheduled.

Hope to see you there.
