Greetings Brothers & Sisters, 

In May, several of us attended the IBEW IO Convention. Numerous resolutions were presented and bylaw changes were passed. Perhaps the biggest and most important was regarding President Biden’s historic infrastructure bill that will generate work for IBEW members. 

Biden’s bill calls for an enormous expansion of the electric vehicle charging station network around the country. For this, we need more trained members. The bill helps fund the Electrical Vehicle Infrastructure Training Program (EVITP). Keep your eye out for announcements from 332’s new JATC (ETASV) for upcoming EVITP classes. Once again, our members will be on the cutting edge of technology.

At the convention, we also passed a resolution to be a more inclusive union so that we reflect the communities we serve. 332 has led the way in providing equal opportunities for all. The 332 Electrical Workers Minority Caucus (EWMC) is a good way to get involved.

One more item to note: 332 social events are back in swing, and I encourage members to come out to forge new relationships and/or rekindle old ones. You and your families are invited to our upcoming Aug. 20 family movie night and our Sept. 17 Coffee & Classics car show.

Every IBEW member is part of our 332 union family, and social events lead to solidarity. That solidarity is the cornerstone of our strength. When we think of ourselves as a family, the whole becomes more important than any one individual. So when it’s time to make decisions, we think of everybody, not just what’s good for one.

I continue to be inspired by the hard work of our members. The impacts we are making on Silicon Valley are long-lasting. By coming together, we can strengthen our communities for ourselves and for all working families.

In Solidarity,

Dan Romero
Business Manager

If you've noticed an uptick in stories about union organizing, it's not your imagination. 

"Union representation petitions filed at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) have gone up more than 50% since last year, the agency announced this week. 

By May, petitions already surpassed the total number of petitions filed last year. So far this year, 1,935 petitions have been submitted — 695 more than 2021, according to a statement from the agency. 

Meanwhile, charges of unfair labor practices have jumped by 14.5% from 11,451 last year to 13,106 in the first three quarters of this fiscal year."

Our Local 332 brother Josh Rubalcaba's beloved 10-year-old daughter Julyanna unexpectedly had to have a heart transplant, and their family needs some financial support to be able to support her lengthy recovery. Anything you can donate to support is welcome & appreciated. Link to GoFundMe in bio.
We look forward to seeing our members at the open house for our new training center this Friday from 4:30-6:30pm!

Uh-oh. Organic doesn't mean it's cruelty-free! 

"Workers have reported several issues on the job, including poor wages, unsafe working conditions and stress injuries. UNITE HERE Local 19 filed multiple unfair labor practice charges alleging that the company’s San Jose location unlawfully fired and disciplined workers for protected activity and union involvement, threatened to fire workers for union support, interrogated workers, surveilled workers, solicited grievances to undermine organizing efforts, and subjected workers to repeated anti-union captive audience meetings."

Congratulations to the workers at the Apple store in Towson, MD, who just voted to become the first #union Apple store in the nation.

“Workers have a right to determine under what conditions they’re gonna work or not,” said President Biden. “And I think the thing that everybody kind of misunderstands about unions, they tend to be, especially in the trades, the best workers in the world.”

Damn right!

Congratulations to @LizShuler on being the first woman elected president of the @AFLCIO--and on an ambitious plan to increase #union membership by about 9% over the next decade.

"We are committing to organizing a million new members over 10 years so that we can hold each other accountable — year after year after year — with goals that we've identified for each union. And that we're laser-focused on coming together to achieve those goals. And like I said, it'll be cross-union collaboration, resourcing and investment."
Hope all the amazing Local 332 dads have a wonderful #FathersDay!
