Message from Business Manager Mark Lawrence
We hope this email finds you all doing well. I am extremely proud of all of you and the tremendous job you do. We are excited to announce that we have decided to improve our unions communications and have a series of new communication tools planned. The first is this email we are calling "The Tailboard." We will be sending this email to the membership with upcoming events, reports on the charity work we do with reminders of upcoming meetings, political actions and social outings. If you do not wish to receive this email, please send your request to removed from receiving this e-newsletter to  
Soon we will start to send out occasional blast text messages and will be launching our new and improved mobile friendly website scheduled for December / January. Our new website will have a scrolling photo gallery, high-resolution graphic banner images, a video gallery, social networking links and buttons, news feeds from the AFL-CIO and the IBEW, newsletter submission forms, upcoming events listings, recent news updates, and an easy to use navigation menu bar. We are also developing the site to be mobile friendly so all the important information that you need will be found with ease with ease on your smartphones and tablets. With this, we are developing a shortcut-like mobile app for you tech junkies out there. 
In the meantime, make sure you get your fellow Local 1249 members who did not receive this email to contact us with their email and cell number to or sign up directly on our current website.Below you will find information on some very important meetings regarding New York's Reforming the Energy Vision Public Hearings. It is vital that our union show up in force to all these hearings. I look forward to seeing you all at upcoming union events and meetings and remember to always make safety a daily habit.
